I am two steps removed from Rod Blagojevich. My cousin, Jack, was playing basketball at DePaul when Rod was running laps. In typical Murphy fashion, Jack approached the govenor, introduced himself then called him to account for cutting funding for the Golden Apple Scholarship Program. According to Jack, the Governor was, “polite but he didn’t answer my question directly.”

I’ve not been a fan of the Governor in quite some time. He vetoed a measure that would have helped my clients, plays politics with key issues and blames the legislature for all of the State’s woes. There are rumblings from his office that’ll resign tomorrow. That would be, by far, the best thing he could do for everyone.
