Population Loss In Illinois

If you’ve been living in Illinois for a while, you’ve probably seen the occasional headline about the so-called ‘Illinois exodus' -- our residents picking up and leaving the state for places like Indiana, or maybe warmer climates like Florida or Texas. According to the latest estimate from the Census Bureau, Illinois’ population decreased by more than 51,000 people in 2019.

We talked about what the future might look like for soy based meats here in Illinois.

The Man Who Made Illinois Politics Shady

He’s on our license plates, in our museums, he is the namesake for a few of our towns and roadways I’m talking about Abraham Lincoln of course. But if you go to the Illinois House of Representatives today you’ll see two portraits: over the side where Republicans sit, Lincoln, over the Democrats, equally prominent, is Stephen A.

Iranian-Illinoisans React To The Death of Qassem Soleimani

A U.S. drone strike killed a top-ranking Iranian military commander in Iraq last week. General Qassem Suleimani was a divisive figure in Iran. Many say he was the second-most powerful man in Iran, only after the Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Khamenei, and possibly even ahead of President Rouhani.
