Illinois Fun Fact

Fact:  In the last 43 years, Illinois has had seven different governors.  Four of them will have ended up in prison.  Yes, that’s greater than 50%.  Randomly selecting a recent IL governor, it is more likely than not that they will have ended up in prison.

Absurd.

NOTE: To compile the above stat, I made the assumption both that Rod Blagojevich is guilty and will end up in prison.  I place the odds on both things happening at about 97%, about the same odds that a Lipton’s teabag falls out of Lt. Gov Quinn’s pocket as he takes the oath.
