Singing the Illinois Blues
No, I'm not talking about the sorry state of the Bulls and the Bears. Their ownership deserves our contempt. It's just so sad to be a fan. I'm talking about other "ownership" deserving of our contempt -- the politicians.
It was good "pol-watching" at Gibson's a few weeks ago. George Ryan looked fit and happy. I guess a few years out of jail gets your bounce back. The Illinois Blues goes like this: first we vote for them, then we hate them, then we jail them. And they just keep their big fat pensions through it all.
Jesse Jackson stopped by to schmooze with George. Everyone's a pal at Gibson's. And, we're around to pick up the check.
