He also touched on many issues in Will County, such as increasing truck traffic, the Illiana Expressway and South Suburban Airport projects. Education and infrastructure investment were issues Quinn touched on that resonated with Russ Slinkard, chief executive officer and president of the Joliet Region Chamber of Commerce & Industry . Slinkard said Quinn did a good job outlining his ideas for education and state infrastructure, but he also wished Quinn would have spoken more about the Illiana Expressway, which he only touched on briefly. He said Quinn offered a better presentation than his Republican opponent Bruce Rauner. I will say, I thought Quinn was much more forthcoming with what his vision was, what his direction would be [and] what he hopes to provide, he said. In June, when Rauner appeared in Joliet for a luncheon hosted by the Chamber, Slinkard said at the time he would have appreciated more details from Rauner about how he would enact his plans.

It’s another way of exploring the emotional bond between men that Tolkien so often praised in his books, and is so often lacking modern pop culture. Ratbag’s addition, based on trailers, could be written off as a silly addition meant to bring something interesting to the plot. By having one Orc front and center in Talion’s quest, we are given a more intimate look at how their society works.
