Quote of the day

"The conduct would make Lincoln roll over in his grave."
Patrick Fitzgerald,
the United States attorney in Chicago,

commenting on charges against
Gov. Rod R. Blagojevich of Illinois.

For the latest on the Blagojevich story, I recommend following the Chicago Tribune. For my newsroom colleagues in Illinois, all hands are on deck for this coverage.

Politician/sleazebag. Too often a redundancy.

THis is such a firestorm. What a story. What a mess. And yet a tragedy as well.
