the illinois governor is nuts (along with mike madigan and the state assembly) so i'm stuck in the middle of budget crisis hell over here.
but in a bit of good news, i may have just successfully lobbied for some federal 'pork'.
(one man's pork is another woman's operating budget, is what i say.)
and i'm trying to decide if i'm going to the Democratic convention in August. (denver, sleeping on the floor of someone's house, blogging the convention, drinking with strangers...hm.)
