Basically a proposal to dissolve the Broken state, because it is just like Venezuela now and has proven that it does not deserve to survive. So just carve it up and the surrounding states annex what they want.
Here is a a snip from the article.
why not let our friendly neighbors like Indiana, Wisconsin, Iowa, Missouri and Kentucky just take the parts they want?
Very interesting read.

Actually not all of Chicago is a warzone.
I've visited twice in the last year, last year I was in the downtown area right by the Married with Children fountain and it was real nice. Last month I was up closer to O'Hare airport and there were really nice neighborhoods especially around the Northern Illinois campus.
I think it's like most cities with good parts and crappy parts. The crappy parts are just extra crappy.
