Bastard of the Day

Once again, newly minted Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner is the bastard of the day. In Wednesday's State of the State address, Rauner looked at our state's economic woes and said, "You know what's wrong with Illinois? Unions!" And then the bastard businessman dared to call his anti-union initiative "employee empowerment zones" as if the employees gain power from rejecting unions.

Let the race to the bottom begin!

Oh well, at least he didn't blame the Jews.

2014 Books Part XIX

Here is the 73rd and final book I read in 2014...

America, You Sexy Bitch: A Love Letter to Freedom by Michael Ian Black and Megan McCain - A liberal and a conservative embark on a cross-country road trip to talk with Americans. Black is just okay. McCain is more complicated, veering from naive and obnoxious to thoughtful and poignant. They meet a few entertaining characters, but there isn't much substance here. 2 stars
