Those of you who are more interested in politics than hockey knew that testimony in Governor Rod Blagojevich’s corruption trial got started yesterday.
But you couldn’t tell from the ten o’clock news.
It was non-stop Black Hawk Stanley Cup celebration time.
The front page of the Chicago Sun-Times did not read,
A LESSON IN
on the newsstands.
One had to go inside to find that.
And nothing in the Tribune except a page three story about some guy getting Blagojevich’s face tattooed on his thigh until one gets to page 6!
So, the politicians of Illinois lucked out.
Less obvious guilt by association that way.
There is still that incumbent problem, however, as the Tribune points out on page 15.
