prodigal revolution #1
Chicago is enduring a heavy microscope following the Blagojevich scandal. people are talking about we are the most corrupt state in the nation. although we know there are few like us, you can't knock the hustle. as the next president ushers in well overdue change, i am refreshed and anxiously nervous. i was asked, if Mr.O played any role in the Blago scandal--or any scandal--would i still admire him? well--i would. here is a black man who encompasses the spirits of America's yesterday and tomorrow's promise. we can't fully mitigate that chicago is that kind of town...if you make it here you can make it anywhere. its a city built on relationships--so there is no doubt in my mind that he is not a "plugged thug." however, i am a believer that Mr. O is an honest man. knowing the state of America, i am positive he wouldn't mess up this soon. and i don't mean to suggest he will because i am HOPEful. i can say that his homecoming after 8 years will be one that is well prepared. there are a lot of toes to step on Mr. O--just know i'm not scared and its plenty more where i come from.
KEEP MAKIN THAT PLATINUM AND GOLD FOR ME!
