Natural hills are a seasonal phenomenon in Illinois. Of course I'll always be a tourist, though I've lived here 20 years. The children on our cul-de-sac are too yuppified to play king of the hill. Instead they are all into virtual reality and play Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers. Why be King of the Hill when you can be Master of the Universe? Hey Red Ranger, let's morph!
