Cubs License Plates Go On Sale Today -- In Illinois Only, Alas

Excellent news for those of you on the east side of the river who are feeling sad that you've never had to spend hours on the phone with your insurance company after you've been rear-ended: The Illinois Secretary of State's office is now selling Chicago Cubs license plates!

Maybe this means that sunshine and grass and baseball and bitter rivalry are all coming back soon?
