"Reached Thursday evening, as he was about to enjoy a dinner of orecchiette with sausage and broccoli rabe cooked by his mom "
Shame on the SunTimes for interupting dinner.
No wait shame on them for printing it.

Can't stand taking the tollway. I try to avoid it if at all possible. I hate to contribute to this out of control and corrupt Illinois system.

this is an old 1996 article
but even back then it exposed the toll road system as both corrupt and money greedy
Increasing motorists' disaffection with the toll system is a lingering image of scandal, spawned by revelations of special perks for tollway employees and the indictment last year of the toll authority's former executive director, Robert Hickman.
Hickman, who resigned in 1994 and now awaits trial, is accused of defrauding the agency of $240,000.
and then this gem
By the toll authority's own estimate, nearly 1,200 of its 1,980 employees--60 percent of the work force--would not be necessary if the toll roads weren't toll roads. And the agency's $128.3-million operating budget could be reduced by nearly $60 million.
So why be surprised that one of them is sleeping on the job ? Its always been known as being corrupt.
