      I'm not sure what to think of Roland Burris. His name will probably be coming up a lot again since the Blagojevich hearings should be coming up soon. Blagojevich hasn't been found guilty yet, but if he were, wouldn't that mean Burris would have to step down? We'll see... it should be interesting. Nice work!

      You as a senator of Illinois are supposed to be my representative, that said I demand the following. stop acorn funding, stop backing gov't run health care, Donot vote for any bill that you have not read and understand fully, do not be a lemming of the democractic party.
