Ernest Fenton is raising a lot of issues about the foreclosure crisis. You might want to look into him. He is being ignored due the the number of candidates running and the fact that others have more clout, but he is a very intelligent and thoughtful attorney.

ADD that to the reasons why there are money in politics but none for the gophers who vote for them, u would think one of these brilliant candidates would bemoan the fact that elections are won for those with the deepest pockets but nope they repeat the same ole same reasons why THEY ARE the brightest and best! Can all of them be ROBIN KELLY straw men? Even Mel could use a handout and consultant job but we haven't heard a word on his roller coaster rise to the Ways- Means along with ERV, CHUCK, ROSTY and JJJ and the wife all of the felons caught up in the conspiracy five in all but it's early! If not it will be bad for the history books good for the mythology writers.

An afterthought I think BLAGO could be included in the web? after all if there was no Senate seat for him to sell to JJJ he would still be out running in Ravens wood and a different Daley would be Mayor and TWIT may be POTUS.JUST FOOD FOR THOUGHT!

BTW, you convinced me to buy a Radon kit. Interested to see what the results are. The 2nd district is going to be a political machine placement for the dems. For anyone else to win, they need to raise millions of dollars to counter it and they are going in as a non democratic candidate. I can't imagine this changing for another 10 years at least. Glad to see the Homewood Hotel is finally gone. There's definitely some pros and cons to a casino going in there, but at least we are laying the framework for SOMETHING to exist that can generate some tax revenue.
