Lottery plan roundup
Friday, May 26, 2006
My Sun-Times column this week is about the governor’s new education/lottery plan.
I figure Gov. Blagojevich’s new education plan will probably end up like that bench-clearing brawl at White Sox Park last weekend: a lot of hype, a flood of media analysis, much huffing and puffing from all corners — all over an initial punch that didn’t even knock down the intended victim.
The paper now has a permalink to all of my columns, which can be found here.
Also, Steinberg isn’t pleased with the plan.
Did Gov. Blago and the Rev. Meeks really need eight hours to agree upon that plan? My third-grader can spout that strategy at a moment’s notice: Let’s eat all the cookies now and not worry about spoiling dinner.
