I am in the midst of a huge writing session to get my campaign book published. Details soon, I promise! So, I will be publishing some briefer blogs and sharing some great material. If news breaks, I'll be here.
My favorite recent article comes from the "Chicago Tribune" suggesting former Bears Coach Mike Ditka, as the next Governor of Illinois, once they dump Rod Blagojevich. Read on and enjoy!
Da Coach Mike Ditka for Illinois governor?
Suburban man launches bid to draft Ditka

Embarrassed by Gov. Rod Blagojevich's fumbling performance, a Burr Ridge man has begun an Internet campaign aimed at yanking the governor from office and replacing him with former Bears coach Mike Ditka.
And, no, the aforementioned man's name is not Bill Swerski. But he's most definitely a superfan.
Shaun Radecki, 27, launched www.dagovernor.com to persuade Iron Mike to lead Illinois. The site, which sells T-shirts, mugs and various tchotchkes urging Ditka to run, lays out its platform in language that only a Bears fan can appreciate.
"We da people of Illinois are sick and tired of scumbag politicians who think dat it's their job to lie, cheat and steal," it reads. "We deserve somebody in charge who we can trust. Somebody who we can depend on. Somebody who we know understands the difference between right and wrong and won't be afraid to kick corruption in the [bleep] harder than da '85 Bears beat down da Patriots in da Super Bowl!"
