Last Week's News

After a brief absence, I am catching up on some news here. The big news last week was ex-governor Rod Blagojevich's reported six-figure book deal. Everyone was all over this story. Read more about it here, here, here and here.

John Kass got into the spirit by holding a "name Blago's book" contest at the Chicago Tribune. He received thousands of entries, and you can view the online voting results now.
