Column: To Keep Up With Ohio, Here Are Some Incentives Illinois Should Provide To People Receiving COVID-19 Vaccines
3) How would you like (most of a) state to be named after you? It is no secret that Illinois, the state, and Chicago, the city, are viewed as two separate entities. To give people an incentive to get vaccinated, we could make another lottery winner the namesake for the part of Illinois that isn’t Chicago. For example, if your name is Sandra Globton and you win the lottery, the non-Chicago part of Illinois will be renamed Globtona. A Ralph Twerpington winner would rename much of the former Illinois “Twewpingtonia”. And so forth. Low cost and a real boon for the mapping industry.
