The Governor of our state was arrested yesterday, joining the previous Governor, who is currently serving a lengthy jail sentence. It would seem that our capitol in Springfield functions as a reverse halfway house for future felons! What saddens me about Rod Blagojevich's shadiness is the impact his actions will have on his two young daughters. We attended an outdoor event a few years ago and Lulu struck up a friendship with his daughter Amy. While the Governor was giving a speech, Lulu and Amy entertained themselves in the Governor's SUV and listened to tunes with the bodyguards. I wonder how his kids will deal with their father's fall from grace and likely imprisonment ? I wish he had been thinking about them when he was selling Barack's Senate seat. The entire state needs a shower, we all feel kind of tainted.
