  1. And to think, they were probably planning to invest that $250 million in the revitalization of Bloomington-Normal. Hahaha! For SF, this is a plum deal. The plaintiffs were seeking a cool $8.5 billion. Will the BN lefty anti-1%ers be protesting this “evil corporation”?

    2. SF, like other corporations, have insurance for this, so it won’t come out of operating funds.

  3. The sad part is that there are folks who have gotten fired from SF for far less infractions! Not to mention all the folks who just lost their jobs because SF has a spending problem.
