What an exciting day in the land of newspapers! When you start off in journalism school - these are the kinds of things that you could only hope to cover (that and the occassional serial killer/missing person/mayor who uses village credit card at strip club - oops already did that one).
Even more exciting is knowing one of the members of the Tribune's editorial board personally and professionally - imagine getting an inside view into the insanity - man I'd love to be a fly on the wall.
On a personal note, what kind of twisted, delusional bastard threatens to withhold money from Children's Memorial Hospital unless the CEO forks over 50K? Excuse my language here - but that's nothing but the work of a corrupt, low-life arrogant ass. Mr. Governor - Screw you.
