I don’t know if Rod Blagojevich would appreciate the near-coincidence, but it turns out he was thrown out of office a mere one day short of the 360th anniversary of the execution of Charles I. Damn. So close.
Nevertheless, I’m reminded of David Hume’s bathetic love letter to the headless king. Perhaps his words can provide Blago and his many adherents with the solace they need in these difficult days.
