Someone Needs A New Job.
No not me. I am satisfied with both of mine, thank you very much. Richard Beard, who I talked about last Sunday, was fired Tuesday by Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich. Of course his attorney is claiming the firing was premature since he hasn't been convicted yet. I think considering the man's past it was a just firing. He has brought disgrace to a wonderful place. I realize our judicial system is innocent until proven guilty, but considering Mr. Beard pleaded guilty before, for the same thing, his removal was appropriate. You can read about it here. Now they can focus on next year, which marks Lincoln's 200th birthday. It will be interesting to see what they do for it.
