Budget lesson humor

To the Editor:

I saw a small article in the newspaper recently with the headline, “Learn budgeting basics at library,” stating that the staff from the Illinois State Comptroller’s Office will present a seminar on how to prepare, track and maintain a budget.

While I know it is the Legislature and governor who determine Illinois’ finances and not these workers, did anyone besides me find this a bit humorous? Budgeting lessons from the state that has been ranked second-worst state (behind California) by one reporting group and listed as a financial disaster by many other rankings?

Perhaps they should be giving the seminar in Springfield, not Crystal Lake.
