The Tennessee Waltz vs. the Chicago Way

I can’t say I disagree with the analysis from my former editor Ricky Young concerning Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s appointment of Roland Burris to the US Senate.

As he points out:

what’s unclear to me is, why shouldn’t blagojevich appoint a senator? he hasn’t even been indicted yet. we had a cluster of legislators indicted in the operation tennessee waltz sting in nashville, and they performed their duties for months. they were accused of following through on bribery, not just talking about it…

I was there for Operation Tennessee Waltz, so, well, yea…
