I root for the Cleve Browns even though they have zero chance of winning the super bowl. Chance of winning doesn't come into play on this obsession - doesn't come into play when I vote either. I vote for what I want - I do not "settle"..

The goal this year is not to win its to get 5% of the vote so ballot access is not an issue in four years. Right up until about a month and a half ago the Libertarians were doing little if any campaigning. They were fighting court battles the GOP brought against them. And it was the same with the Green and Constitution partys to get on the ballot. Its hard to fund raise when you can't campaign…

What we need is a better voting system...like the Borda method. Then the 3rd party candidate most assuredly would have a chance....but for just that reason you'll never see it....the controlling parties not wanting a 3rd party to have any chance. Plus it's a bit difficult to count unless you are computerized. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Borda_count

AMBOY – Mike Pasley, 47, a popular social studies teacher at Amboy High School for 10 years, died Sunday at KSB Hospital, Lee County Coroner Jesse Partington confirmed this morning.

The school held a brief meeting with students this morning to let them know, and will have counselors and clergy members on hand all day for any who wish to use them, Principal Joshua Nichols said.

The school also has brought in a substitute teacher, to be used if any of Amboy's teachers feel the need to step out at any time, he said.

Neighboring school districts also have sent counselors to assist, and "we're very appreciative," Nichols said, adding that the students are "doing fine."

Pasley was a well-liked teacher, Nichols said. "A number of students are going to be missing him."

Pasley, of Dixon, also had been a sports correspondent for Sauk Valley Media and for The (Moline) Dispatch and Rock Island Argus.

An autopsy was being conducted this morning; natural causes are likely, Partington said.

Information on services will be posted when it becomes available. Jones Funeral Home in Dixon is handling arrangements.
