Well done, Emma (banned punctuation). Your dad made us better, individually (I took his comments on my words to heart) and the state in general. He would be so proud of you. Thanks for taking on a field in which you can make the world a better place. Looking forward to seeing you in action.
Congrats to Emma and the Oxnevad family, and to the state of Illinois for the gain of another talented journalist. I look forward to following her career both for the quality writing and because it will remind me of her dad.
Congratulations, Emma [exclamation point]. Very nicely done. Wishing you much success in your chosen (and critically important) field.

Not to change the subject but the ugly, mostly windowed office building at the northeast corner of College and Monroe near the Capitol Complex has now been demolished and reduced to rubble. After existing since 1965 (according to the Sangamon County Recorder). For about the past year or so that building has been cordoned off presumably for asbestos removal. Definitely not surprised that building is gone as its support beams on the ground parking level was rusting. Many state agencies had offices in that atrocity over the years, including Governor’s Office of Citizens Assistance (but I can’t recall the others).
