>>Lesson In Politics From Patti Blagojevich
(Springfield, IL) -- Illinois politicians can take a lesson from Patti Blagojevich when it comes to creating a more peaceful state. At least that's what Springfield's Tom Heintzelman thinks. He tells the "State Journal Register" that Patti's efforts to plant wildflowers on highways and expressways, is an example of passionate, duty-driven public service, aimed at making the state more beautiful.
Heintzelman goes on to say, "If everyone from the governor on down could take just a few minutes to consider the wildflower, our state would be in a healthier state. After all, there is no bickering partisanship in wildflowers."
