I’m back in Iowa for my third election and I must say I am really enjoying it. No snow and a lot of interesting people.
Earlier this month I had the strange fortune of being assigned to cover perhaps the oddest story of my career. This eclipsed the salt stain Virgin Mary and bloody dwarfs wrestling.
I shot my last sports event of the year last night… time to go home for Christmas!
Every time I see the BlagojevichÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s, Patti pulls Rod like shes over having a puppy on a leash who wonÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t stop licking random people. However, whats more interesting to me is that she can be heard on surveillance tapes saying some choice words, ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œHold up that fÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Âing Cubs sÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Â. FÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Â them.ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â
My toes are still cold, but it comes with the territory when you wait out in the cold for over an hour. I was there when convicted felon and former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich just arrived home after the first day of his two day sentencing for federal corruption charges.
