What will the neighbors think?

SHARE What will the neighbors think?

After hearing the news that Governor Rod Blagojevich had been arrested, I hopped in my car to see what kind of action was happening at his Ravenswood Manor home. Since I live just down Montrose from him, I was able to beat most of the TV crews and other reporters. When I got there around 8:30, it was pretty quiet, aside from a few police cars. Most of his neighbors weren’t around, but I found a few people who were out for a stroll willing to talk to me about what they thought of the charges.
