News for the day

There are a couple of things probably not worth a whole post that you should know to be a well-rounded news junkie:

1) Osama Bin Laden didn’t think Vice President Joe Biden was worth shootin’. I know it’s wrong of me, but I think that’s really funny.

2) Illinois passed a measure in both their House and Senate against the wishes of the teacher’s union to give Rahm Emanuel greater control of Chicago schools. Teachers can be fired for poor performance. Have you ever heard of anything so revolutionary?

Honestly I think the big deal here is Rahm Emanuel’s political savvy. The legislation passed without a single no vote. Heck, in Wisconsin we can’t get folks to agree to a bathroom break without voting discord and chanting from the gallery.
