*LBN-COMMENTARY by Mike Shedlock: The state of Illinois has not passed a budget for close to three years. Arguably it’s just as well because Illinois budgets for decades have been nothing but a moth-eaten collection of lies, one time deficits repeated endlessly, and financial wizardry statements designed to disguise Illinois’ real problems: failure to rein in spending coupled with a very business unfriendly environment. As Illinois’ bond rating careens towards junk, Illinois unpaid bills jumped to $14.3 billion. Today, the state told contractors to halt roadwork other than that required for safety.

*LBN-OVERHEARD: ***Richard Williams, the famed father of tennis champs Venus and Serena Williams, is divorcing his wife of seven years. Richard, 75, not only wants to end his marriage to Lakeisha Williams, 38, he claims she’s stealing his Social Security checks and has forged his name on a deed transfer. To make matters worse, Richard and Lakeisha share a 5-year-old son, who Richard claims is in danger while in her care. He says Lakeisha is staying with someone with pending “criminal felony charges.” There are also allegations of alcoholism and gun theft against her. ***“Saturday Night Live” comic and “Rough Night” star Kate McKinnon was fêted by Elle magazine at the Public hotel with a stand-up show featuring feisty feminist comedy from Jamie Lee, Tiffany Haddish, Cristela Alonzo and Whitney Cummings. “There was a rumor going on for a while that men like strong women,” Cummings joked to the female crowd. “No, they don’t. I’ve seen porn . . . They have categories you can pick from on the side, it’s like ‘girl-on-girl,’ ‘college girl.’ There’s no ‘CEO girl with a book deal.’ ”
