“Rich Miller’s Last Lap”, the heartbreaking movie about the life of blogger Rich Miller who didn’t drink the Rauner brand Kool-Aid which contained the only antidote to the poisonous gas which was Working its way Right down To the end of Illinois.
Reminds me of the time several years ago when State Sen. Sam Vadalabene (Edwardsville) was at Fairmount Park racetrack to watch a horse named Senator Sam owned by a friend race. Before the race Sen. Sam (the politician) after a few beers decided he wanted to be the jockey for Sen. Sam (the horse) but was eventually persuaded that was not possible (although he was diminutive enough to be a jockey). The horse was just one of many namesakes for the senator along with buildings, streets, bike paths,etc. As I recall although Sen. Sam the politician never lost an election, Sen. Sam the horse never won a race (perhaps if Sen. Sam had been allowed to ride him maybe he would have). So maybe someday Rich Miller will get to ride Rich Miller
