Didn't walk a 4th of July parade, hung out with my folks and the family I their summer place.
Was rather nice.
Still no budget and the Trib is reporting that people who give money to U of I try and wield and sometimes do wield influence. Still looking forward to hearing if anyone from the Trib ever dropped a dime to make something happen at U of I.
Also a bit confused about the whole Palin thing, Governor people resign to become cabinet members, ambassadors or hold different elected offices. They just don't quit so they can go around the country giving speeches. Sorry.
