Developing Story: Blago, the Cubs and the Feds

Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich (a.k.a G-Rod or Blago) was arrested today on several federal charges.

Can anyone tell me why being Illinois governor is a dead end job? I guess G-Rod and George Ryan can figure that out together in the slammer.

For those of you who read this site that are not politically inclined, here's the Cubs-related news nugget you're waiting for:

"Blagojevich and (chief of staff John) Harris also allegedly conspired to demand the firing of Chicago Tribune editorial board members responsible for editorials critical of Blagojevich in exchange for state help with the sale of Wrigley Field, the Chicago Cubs baseball stadium owned by Tribune Co."

I wonder how this will effect that whole Jake Peavy thing?

Only time can tell.
