Lincoln Wept

Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you;

The campaign for governor of the great State of Illinois. Gah.

Even worse - The President of the Cook County Board gets laid low by a stroke...still wins the Democratic Primary. Now he won't run in the general election - wait for it - so his son declares that he should be placed in Dad's place. GAH!

Will Illinois ever go back to:

There is sobbing of the strong,
And a pall upon the land;
But the People in their weeping
Bare the iron hand;
Beware the People weeping
When they bare the iron hand.


[Herman Melville after the death of Abraham Lincoln]

Until Ron Reagan became president I never thought we could go back like what the sentiments in that verse portrayed.
Maybe some day we will see a stronger shift in our leadership like Lincoln, one can only pray.
