Well, things are beginning to get more interesting. With the Wisconsin Supreme Court tossing out most of the Wisconsin shut-down order, schools were left closed, it appears that a message got through to the Minnesota governor to start opening his state up. With Indiana opening up on a steady basis, and Iowa never having really closed up, Illinois and Michigan are beginning to look more and more like a couple of very odd states out. The Illinois Supreme Court has not, as yet, made any ruling on any of the now numerous lawsuits filed against Pritzker's order, but Wisconsin's ruling has to give Pritzker some pause. The lawsuits are all arguing basically the same as the Wisconsin suit. As the Supreme Court of Illinois has not made any ruling, I am betting that they would rather not make one, and just hope that Pritzker will have some sense and drop his order at the end of May. Another county sheriff has stated that he will not be enforcing the lock-down order, and this one is in the Chicago Metropolitan Area in Kendall County. I suspect that a fair number of downstate counties are doing the same thing, just not making any announcements.

The small businesses are hitting their breaking point. Either they open really soon, or they close permanently. If they close permanently, those jobs are gone permanently. Once they close, no one is going to stick their neck out and gamble their life savings and long-term prospects again. Pritzker's requirements for reopening the state are so far from being realistic, that he could legitimately claim to keep the state closed up for 12 to 18 more or longer. Destroying the state economy is not going to win him or the Democratic Party a who lot of fans. Then you have the exodus from Illinois of those who have the financial wherewithal to leave, i.e. the taxpaying types. I doubt if he will get his $41 Billion bailout from the U.S. Senate. As for California, Oregon, and Washington State getting a Trillion Dollars, the governors there have to be stoned out of the minds.

Aside from all of this, my church is going to reopen for full services on May 31, which happens to be Pentecost Sunday. Somehow, that is quite fitting to me. A good day to throw the gauntlet down to a dictator
