Hope the fir and smoke near the yet-to-be-constructed park district handicap playground continues forever. Might help keep the bugs from giving west nile virus and other diseases to the kids trying to play in the bug infested place.

Come on Moyers, it's a temporary situation and we have to get rid of all this brush some way and burning is quick and efficient. It's not like the burning is going to be on going and permanent. And the business man complains he can't burn his "stuff" , but unless he's in the tree trimming business his stuff is trash not brush or trees.

I actually did have it pointed out to me that this may be a 5th Amendment issue, and that the hole in the foot was self-inflicted. No more evidence of that than anything else, but it's just as possible.

Ex-congressman Jackson is eligible to receive $8,700 dollars per month in disability pay due to his bipolar condition

From WLS:

August 14, 2013 (WLS) -- The ABC7 I-Team is following the money, from the jewelry, trips and clothing to the celebrity trinkets, all paid for by the Jacksons' "personal slush fund"-- to use the words of Washington's top federal prosecutor. 

The assistant head of the FBI in Washington Wednesday night says of Jesse and Sandi Jackson, "They can hide no more." For years, they hid lavish spending of campaign money, but the I-Team has learned that U.S. officials plan for the government to make money off of some of their purchases, auctioning off some of those Jackson treasures. At the same though, that very same government may also be paying ex-congressman Jackson monthly disability, and later, a pension.

First the pensions, for both Jacksons. They were public employees: his work for the federal government since being elected to Congress in 1995; her work for the City of Chicago since being elected alderman in 2007.

Ex-congressman Jackson is eligible to receive $8,700 dollars per month in disability pay due to his bipolar condition and could receive a partial federal pension of $45,000 per year once he reaches 65.
