Friday thoughts

* People who mock the way Michelle Obama dresses are petty, small-minded people. She is a fabulous dresser and a wonderful woman.

*Barack Obama is doing just what we elected him to do. I am glad he is our president and I fully support him.

* I'm sick of people from the northern fourth of the state saying Springfield is the reason for all the problems of Illinois. Seventy out of 118 state representatives, and about 38 of the 60 state senators are from the northern fourth of the state. More on this thought at a later date.

* I haven't read her book, and probably won't, but from what I've heard, Sarah Palin's new book proves why she is not vice presidential material (or presidential, for that matter).

* If you're concerned about impaneling an impartial jury just blocks from Ground Zero for the trial of an al-Qaeda leader who allegedly spearheaded the 9/11 attacks, thank you for your concern with civil liberties. If you're concerned with the "risk" (and I'm not saying there isn't risk), then if not New York, where? Cleveland, Peoria, San Francisco? Guantanamo Bay?

Re: "the northern fourth of the state," you have to differentiate between the belly of the beast, Chicago (heavily Democratic and about 30 percent of the state's population) and the unsightly Republican suburban girdle. Having looked downstate from thhe, frankly I've always heard that Chicago's to blame for everything. Not Springfield.
