Proviso Probe

BRAC, Forest Park

Chicago Tribune (Ryan Keith) quotes our governor.

"Taking the F-16s out of Springfield would compromise our ability to protect the people of Illinois and will impact the safety and security of the entire Midwest," Blagojevich said in a statement.

Do you feel at risk?

Instead of wasting time with the pro-forma objections to bases closing and getting realigned--they don't call it the "base realignment and closure" commission for nothing--could Mayor Calderone, Governor Blagojevich, Congressman LaHood and Congressman Kirk get together and make a deal to move the Forest Park Reserve Center 2 1/2 miles?

This would be a big win for Forest Park. It seems doable. Better to light a candle than to curse the darkness, right?

  • I'm sorry I couldn't help ridiculing Blagojevich. I guess he thinks his over-the-top rhetoric proves he's serious about security... sorta like voting for the Iraq War.
