It’s been a long time since I’ve kept this page updated. I’m going to start commenting on various current events and topics when the mood strikes me. These entries will be similar to the ones I did about Foster Children and Women and Islam in Western Culture. I hope to be able to do this several times a week… However, with four children still at home sometimes my plans don’t come to fruition! :) I guess we’ll see…

NOTE: I thought I had posted this yesterday, but I guess it remained only a draft?!?! Apologies for that.
A posting on the Chicago Tribune website states that sources tell them a key witness in the former-Governor Blagojevich’s corruption case regarding the US Senate seat is dead.
Christopher Kelly, who cited Federal Attorney pressure in his decision to plead guilty recently in regards to charges against him, is reportedly dead at the age of 51 years old. He was due to testify for the government in the upcoming Blagojevich trial on corruption charges that arose from an alleged “pay-to-play” scheme on the part of Blagojevich in naming a replacement for Obama in Congress.
Here’s link to the entry at the Chicago Tribune Website:

Well, I sure made a mistake! And, as it turns out it’s a rather big one.
I take little consolation in the fact that I wasn’t the only one to make the mistake, as I am the one who published a post on this blog about it when I should’ve at the very least waited until reviewing the audio for the debates to double-check that what I had heard (and what others had heard) was indeed accurate.
FOR THE RECORD:
The name that Senator Joe Biden mentioned in his anecdotal story about the man at the gas pump, was “Joey Danco“, and NOT Joey Stanko .
Now, I was originally going to do as many media sources do when they have made a mistake and merely delete the story, however, that would be more akin to covering up my mistake than setting the record straight. So, along with this separate post, I will copy and paste a link to this notice at the very beginning of the original post.
I would like to take this opportunity to first apologize to my readers. I would never intentionally seek to mislead anyone about issues so important to this election. I have no need to make up information regarding Senator Biden, nor Barack Obama. Simply addressing the issues I believe makes a much more salient point about any objections I may have to their campaign.
I would also like to take this opportunity to apologize to Senator Biden, to Joseph Stanko, Jr., as well as extending my apologies to Joey Danco. As a result of this embarassing learning experience, I resolve to double- and triple-check with as many sources as I possibly can before running with a story like this again if the opportunity ever presents itself to me again.
Again, I am truly sorry for this collosal misunderstanding.
