Retirement

Word on the street is that Denny Hastert will retire from his seat BEFORE his term ends.

Let me propose a new law right here. If you retire before your term ends and it triggers a special election, as Denny's action would do, YOU must pay for the special election.

Seriously, I get it how you don't want to watch someone in your job, especially a girl. But he ran, he won his election and buddy, you need to stay put. Especially when it'll cost the taxpayers to find a replacement. Add in the cost of candidates running a campaign in early 2008 and then again in November.

And yes, I have thought the same thing before when Dems step aside.

Of course, if you're very sick and need to retire, that's fine. But just to retire, nope...not...cool.

Frederick, A Virtual Puppet Performance - Read by Michael Shannon

WOW...this is my first post during the Coronavirus pandemic! I hope you and your loved ones are healthy and safe. Thanks to the Chicago Children’s Theatre, the city’s largest professional theater devoted exclusively to children and families, for launching a new YouTube channel, CCTv: Virtual Theatre and Learning from Chicago Children’s Theatre. To kick if off we are treated to Frederick. Here's hoping this helps with your little ones. Or is a comfort to everyone of all ages. Chicago Children’s Theatre’s all-new virtual puppet performance was created while all of the artists were sheltering in place, working with resources limited to what they had in their homes or on their laptops. Frederick is directed by CCT Co-Founder and Artistic Director Jacqueline Russell. Puppets and sets were designed, built and puppeteered in a home studio by Grace Needlman and Will Bishop, CCT’s Director of Production, the creative team behind CCT’s annual series of Beatrix Potter puppet show
