Make it stop already.
And speaking of U of I hegemony, you may recall I recently posted on how you can’t find any college gear in local stores from any state university other than the U of I. And you can find a ton of that. Well a few weeks ago, Mrs. TEH took our college bound daughter to tour the Eastern Illinois University campus in Charleston. After they were done, they stopped in nearby Mattoon to have lunch and do some shopping. In one of the stores, they came across a display of clothing emblazoned with University logos. However, there was nothing from Eastern despite EIU being just down the road. But, of course, there was plenty of U of I crap.
