A few years ago, corrupt outgoing Illinois govorner George Ryan commuted the sentences of everyone of Death Row in the state.
Like so many Illinois politicians before him, Ryan was under investigation for corruption (which this time had led to the deaths of six children in one family.)
I commented at the time that this was almost Biblical wisdom.
After all, I told someone, Ryan is just trying to make friends among his future neighbors.
I hate to say I told you so, but ...
Actually I don't hate it at all. I'm kinda gloating. But I have to let you see me as hating it ... :)
