Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich wants to sell the entire Illinois lottery -- including the emerging online ticket sales operation -- to fund education for Illinois residents. The plan is generating opposition from expected, and unexpected, quarters, but don't count me among the opponents -- just yet. The state of Illinois, where I've lived for the last 10 years or so, after previously living in Washington, D.C., is in a financial mess, pretty much because of the irresponsible fiscal policies of the incumbent governor.

Illinois will suffer as well with the failure of HB1124. This would have allowed one on one games of skill competition for money or prizes. It may have been able to contribute significantly to the economy in Illinois. A petition has been started online to have the bill reopened or amended.

When an operating system upgrade is released for your personal computer, how soon do you install it?
ASAP -- I like to have the latest software and security features as soon as they become available.
After a Couple of Weeks -- I wait a little while in case there are problems reported by first users of the new OS.
After One Month or Longer -- I'm skeptical of new software versions and want to be confident that bugs have been fixed.
Maybe Never -- If my computer is working, my view is "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."
