Before shamefully heading to the dustbin of history as the Lego-haired embarrassment he is, Blagojevich gave the world the final star-making performance it'd been waiting for.
The Parking Ticket Geek tells about a growing parking meter revolt on the South Side and warns that a meter vigilante may be lurking in the shadows, plus the best place to watch Blagojevich's continued breakdown.
If Illinoisans want to put a stop to the culture of corruption, as they claim in poll after poll that they do, then they have to do something about it. It's not all up to Patrick Fitzgerald.
I met Jackson in the spring of 2003 when I was writing a profile of then-Gov. Rod Blagojevich. She was impressive, strong willed and minded and, initially, difficult.
Obama's straight and narrow contrasts with Blagojevich's down and dirty, and it is no wonder that one man sits in the White House while the other awaits a federal home of a different variety.
Perhaps Proft will be successful. After all, the Illinois governor's office has been a welcoming place for crackpots.
Stewardship will solve the equal opportunity corruption in the United States if more and more of us will take our stewarding duties seriously. It's only going to work one individual at a time.
The most risible language contortions this side of Dick Cheney's tortured definitions of "torture" surround mavericky Sarah Palin, whose regular butchering of the English language rivals that of George W. Bush.

Did Spencer liken himself to Heath Ledger? Wow. Whatever mind games he's playing, they're starting to work on me.
"Judicial activism" (or, alternatively, "legislating from the bench") is defined -- no matter what your political beliefs -- as "judges not ruling the...
Sen. Burris only had to tell the truth to the House Special Investigative Committee, of which I was a member, to be seated in the Senate. He did not fulfill that requirement.
The media continues to exaggerate evidence of malfeasance on the part of Roland Burris.
Standing in the governor's ofﬁce, toe to toe with Blagojevich, Jesse White fumed, "Governor, for whatever you think of [former governor] George Ryan... I've known him for thirty years. He never lied to me once. You've lied to me 15 times in six months."
Does anyone believe that Burris, who was panting after the Senate appointment as the capstone to his headstone, would not have delivered the check had Blagojevich not been arrested?
Burris knows exactly what he is doing. All these years I thought he was decent but dim. Turns out it was an act that I, and many others in Illinois, bought.
