Not that I made a habit of hanging out in Homer Township, but Isure as hell won’t be going there anytime soon:
The leaders of Homer Township—in Will County, in the southwest
suburbs—have brought a little bit of Arizona to the metro Chicago area,
passing a resolution declaring English as their official language.As Fox News Chicago reports, township clerk Steve Balich, a resolution backer, admits that Homer doesn’t evenhavean
immigrant “problem,” but “you have to start somewhere and so we’re
starting here.” He hopes other places will learn about the resolution
and “have the courage to stand up and do the same thing.”
Fox reports that Balich is “very active” in the Tea Party movement. A look at theHomer/Lockport Tea Party’s website suggests that Balich might want to start there with enforcing the new resolution.
the front page are the typos “preevering” and “thhe”—as in, “Preerving
Our Freedom – Picnic Rally,” and “Glenn Beck at thhe Sears Centre.” On
the right side of the page, a hyperlink takes you to the “Illinois General Assemble.” Inexplicable, inconsistent usage of upper-case letters, such as “To be Updated,” possibly demands its own resolution.
