On Sunday, our U.S. Representative Rahm Emanuel introduced a cajun act at the seventh annual Folk & Roots Festival in Welles Park. He later strolled by the blanket with his young daughter in tow. A few weeks back, as we we’re walking home from the square, a lanky man came jogging toward us. As he got nearer we could see it was our friendly Governor Rod Blagojevich dressend in an all black exercise outfit. I said, “Governor,” as if I had a top hat to tip. He replied in kind, thinking we might be two of his supporters. Supporters, or no, it’s nice to see these two out among the people, enjoying the neighborhood.
