So Rod Balgojevich is back in the news again and aside from all the normal shit he's been up to, apparently he's thinking of joining the ranks of reality tv show cast member. That's right. At his latest court appearance his attorney mentioned that Rod would soon be asking to get his passport back, which was taken when he was arrested. NBC confirmed that if that happens, Rod will join other celebrities on a show called, "I'm a celebrity...Get me out of here!" The show will be filmed in the Costa Rican jungle and test the celebrity's (and one corrupt politician's) ability to adapt. Luckily, NBC is not paying Rod, or the other celebrities for their appearance. The money will be donated to their favorite charity.
Also in Illinois news...
A special state legislative subcommittee recently held a meeting over Senate Bill 1381, the bill that would legalize marijuana in Illinois for those suffering with serious medical conditions. Another bill recently passed the House Human Services Committee on March 9th called the Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis Pilot Program Act. This will be the first medical marijuana bill to get off the house floor.
In Chicago news, an Englewood teenager has been charged with the murder of a 15-year-old Chicago Public School student over a dispute at a dice game. The student becomes the 32nd CPS student to be killed this school year. 32 kids is a pretty damn big number. What the fuck, Chicago?
