I have to point out that Dan L may well be the funniest and insightful addition to Illinoize to date. You have to make a point to read his stuff.
My respect to birthday boy Rich Miller for acknowledging on multiple occasions now what a fine job Treasurer Alexi Giannoulias has done to date. Rich was pretty tough on him before the election, and I admire his willingness to share his new opinion. I was impressed by Alexi when we first met and I don't see that changing any time. He is a good man beyond his years.
