If you've been wondering what it would take to get a statue of yourself put on display in our state's capital city of Springfield, you might want to get started by saving 77 people from drowning in the Rock River. Oh, and then get elected president.
Last night, I started getting emails and texts from some people I know who are pretty plugged-in to Illinois politics. When I say plugged-in, I mean they're obsessed with the political machinations of a state that has just been named (again) as one of America's most corrupt states.
You've undoubtedly heard quite a bit in the news recently about the recently-passed, controversial legislation known as the "Police Reform Bill." And, while the bill has its supporters, law enforcement agencies from across the state are in heavy opposition to it.
