With news about Tony Rezko slowing down, some of you have asked about starting up a blog that follows the Blagojevich investigation.

I'm happy to say we've launched The Blago Blog today.
Eye on Rezko won't be shut down just yet. But expect to find frequent updates on the Blago Blog.

No complaining.
“…Lots of boaters are unhappy with plans to use Monroe Harbor as the rowing venue for the 2016 Olympics should Chicago win the Games, but you won't hear many complaints.

The Chicago Yachting
uggs outlet Association, an umbrella group for 15 yacht clubs in the Chicago area, has asked members to keep a lid on it, noting in a memo obtained by the Tribune that yacht clubs "are vulnerable to retribution."

Mayor Richard Daley's office and the Chicago Park District have made it clear "that they do not wish to talk about issues that may be confrontational until after October 2009," according to the memo by an association committee charged with formulating an approach to the city's Olympic plans.

City officials say they aren't trying to stifle dissent before Oct. 2, when the International Olympic Committee, which values popular support, selects a host city. But critics of the bid, from parks activistugg outlets to concerned taxpayers, believe boosters have worked to suppress public criticism and withhold potentially controversial information.”


Know God’s a complete, concrete, kick-ass reality.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

Flash!!!
It just crosed my mind that Obama will pardon Rezko. That's why he has not come to trial. They don;t want any information out on Obama, coming from the the city of Chicago and all of the politilco crime. There is a chance that he may be killed to keep him from talking.

Whatever happened to the old adage "Follow the money?" I mean the BIG money. Not little people trying to get by. How is that the son of "Boss" gets off without any hangups?
From that 'other paper':

John Kass’s column, “Don't look too closely at Daley's Olympic plan “has some relevance about corruption (not the wall street kind that Michael Moore will investigate since our ‘news media’ is asleep at the switch.

“Daley has already sold off the Skyway to a private management firm, and Midway Airport, and all the city's parking meters, blowing long-term assets for short-term cash. At this rate, if one of his guys gets a lobbying deal in Dubai, he might sell off all the water in Lake Michigan in the middle of the night, and everyone will wake up to the sound of fish flopping in the mud.

Such private management contracts shield information about lucrative subcontracts and, for instance, whose political brother-in-law with the room-temperature IQ gets hired after cashing in his second six-figure government pension.

Pestered by reporters about the wisdom of selling everything he can get his hands on, Daley got angry and trashed his entire city workforce, the same workforce that he's been managing for almost 20 years now, the same workforce that puts his stooges in office.

"They're not customer-related. They're gonna leave at 5 o'clock. They're gonna leave at 4:30 or 4. I'm sorry. We are on the time clock. They walk out. But in the private sector, when you have a customer, you're gonna stay there making sure they're happy and satisfied," said Daley, who regularly takes three-day weekends to his Grand Beach estate when he's not jetting off on free vacations to Paris, Geneva, Rome, Beijing, Mumbai and elsewhere.”
