"They" say it's always the hardest part and I'll have to agree.
Although only a month has passed since the 7th Court of Appeals heard the orals in Moore/Shepard, it seems like time is dragging on.
Since it was one of the last arguments heard, I really don't expect an opinion until August, but it doesn't seem to help. I know plenty of other folks are in the same boat though, so I don't feel alone in that regard.
In the meantime, let's support those like minded folks in Chicago. It sure seems like the city is rife with violence already this summer. Next week is Taste of Chicago and lots of folks will be attending that event. Good thoughts of safety to all of them.
Personally, I'm thinking of skipping IMTS (International Manufacturing Technologies Show) this year. It's held at McCormick Place in Chicago and reports are that even that area is getting pretty rough lately. I haven't missed it since 2006, but that may have to change since Chicago is starting to look more and more like Detroit.
