The governor was arrested this morning!

What a shock!
No, wait, this is Illinois.
The last governor is in prison.

It's not so much that Ryan is in prison that makes this less of a shock.

It's that it's the Democratic Party in Illinois we're talking about. Doesn't anyone have a long-term memory anymore?!?

Dearest Jim,

Having perused your blog, I have come to realize that you are not only sick and twisted, but you enjoy the proliferation of satire, hate Charter, feed your dogs hot dogs and a melange of soda products; can't figure out street lights; like to waste time on Mondays and last but not least; you have an 'applesauce' problem. Nice to see your writing again Jim. When are you coming out with your next book? Until then...
-Paul

David -- my mother like to say "All politicians are crooks" -- then she would give examples from my father's family. Blagojevich has been good for Madison and St. Clair Counties so that's pretty much all I care about. To non-Midwesterners, that means he was spending money downstate rather than it all going to Chicago and its suburbs.

Hi Paul, I looked at your blog. You might have posted your post to your subhead, either that or my drugs have kicked in! :)

I just think it's funny listening to people trying to pronounce his last name.

Just call him Rod.

Makes me homesick for Illinois.

They should just give him new title. Hmm... let's see now... I got it! We can call him inmate.
