Don't Mess with Sam Zell
As a follow-up to today's post, there's this morning's news that our beloved governor, Rod Blagojevich, has been picked up the feds for running his office as a criminal enterprise. Specifically, the complaint alleges that Blagojevich tried to put the screws to Tribune Company owner Sam Zell to have him fire the Tribune editorial board writers who have been calling for the hapless governor's impeachment, or have Blagojevich hold up funding for renovations at Wrigley Field. Courtesy of the Trib, here's a link to the entire 78-page complaint, here. John Kass must be in hog heaven. What kind of idiot would think he can best a bare-knuckles gutter fighter like Sam Zell? Does this mean Pat Quinn gets to pick our next U.S. Senator?
