Barack & Emil.

Sometimes friendship saves the day.

Just finished writing Sunday's column..which will be online Saturday....
The curtain goes up, thanks to a call from Barack Obama to Emil Jones, on the Senate's reconsideration of the ethics bill following Governor Blagojevich's amendatory veto.

When in doubt, dumb it down, keep it simple. Yes, I'm talking to you, working men and women, ordinary people, average families, lunch-bucket-lugging, kitchen-table-sitting, paycheck-to-paycheck-struggling small-town patriots and big-city steelworkers.

Did I mention moms? Good grief, I meant to. You, my sisters, are the most important of all.

September 2, 2008


BY CAROL MARIN Sun-Times Columnist

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Perhaps Bristol Palin planned to have a baby at 17. Perhaps she didn't. Either way, it's none of my business.
