Ding dong

The Chief is dead.

Except that some die-hard ignoramuses (ignoramusi?) who just can't get it through their pointy little heads that it's over.
As for the pro-Chief camp, Roger Huddleston said he was disappointed in the NCAA's decision, but he was optimistic.

"We have to see the board's response and we have yet to see what the legislation will do on a national basis. There are other things out there, other initiatives that are still viable," Huddleston said, referring to possible legislation that would call for denying the NCAA the right to impose sanctions against a university because of its team name, symbol or mascot.
Doesn't our government have a few more pressing issues to deal with than an outmoded, pathetic, racist relic from a past that's better off buried?

And so it goes.

I wonder

How many times have our legislators said they're gonna address the rising gas price problem since 911?

When do you suppose the action will kick in?

And so it goes.

Inferring nothing

Just wondering.

How would the immigration debate be playing out if the bulk of the illegal immigrants were from the Middle East rather than being Latino?

Making no judgements. Just wondering.

And so it goes.

A good Monday

Republican Gov. George Ryan has been found guilty on all 18 federal racketeering and corruption counts.

Tribune alerts email called it a shocker. An understatement.

But most welcome.

And don't forget that it is Judy Baar Topinka's and Judy Myers' mentor George Ryan being found guilty on all 18 federal fraud, corruption and racketeering charges.

Gonna take some talking by the state GOP to spin their way out of this one. I'm sure they'll try. But remember, THEY ELECTED HIM. More than once. Can't spin their way out of that.

And so it goes.

Not forgotten

Posting will continue to be light here for the near future. Long hours, low pay and high boredom all factor into a lack of time, energy and motivation.

(Just in case anyone was wondering.)

And so it goes;
