…that toddling town

First the sort of good news. the Bank of America has blinked in the Republic Windows and Doors affair and the workers should be receiving what is owed them under the law. Obviously the BofA didn’t want to get cut out of any of the free money the Hedgemony is handing out to banks because of bad publicity.

I’m not even sure that the tribulations of Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich even qualifies as news. I would have thought that every newspaper in the state would have a fill-in-the-blanks boiler plate story about the governor being arrested for corruption. They should just have all newly elected governors post bonds, designate criminal defense attorneys, have their prints and mug shots taken, before being sworn in. It would save a lot of time.

Daniel Gross of Newsweek has an informative little piece on the life and times of the once king of leveraged rag-picking, Sam Zell. Sam would have been fine if the bubble hadn’t burst before he could break-up and sell off the Tribune empire.
