Why should getting in a twist
offer bliss?

Is it like wearing a shoe that fits too tight
and when you take it off you feel delight?

Whence derives this joy of flexing?
Isn't it really quite perplexing?

Powers of Recall

Unlike the residents of California, Illinois citizens have never possessed recall powers.  We have to put up with our governors - for their complete 4 year terms.

Sometimes it's enough to make us squirm.

But maybe that's about to change.  Lawmakers are upset with our current governor - so upset that they working on putting a constitutional amendment before the voters.

Strangely, the legislators are exempting themselves, and judges, from the provisions.

Which proves they're smart guys,
since otherwise
we might recall
them all.
