The [Wednesday] Papers

"Gov. Pat Quinn says he doesn't know if he would support legislation that would give same sex couples the same rights as heterosexual couples," AP reports.

He's not sure. After all, it's a new issue.

"The Democrat supported same sex civil unions, which became legal in Illinois last summer. However, he said Tuesday he wants to study issues surrounding same-sex marriage before he makes a decision."

He wants to study up. After all, it's a new issue.

Pat Quinn is a Democrat.

On the other hand, Quinn is for gay money.

Boycott!

Paging Rick Garcia.

Rahm's World
"Mayor Rahm Emanuel said Tuesday that he didn't direct a political consulting firm with close ties to him to organize faith and community groups in support of his education agenda, nor was he aware the company was doing so," the Tribune reports.

And yet, somehow they knew what to do.

"The mayor's comments followed a Tribune report Monday that Resolute Consulting has given money and organizational help to groups that support Emanuel's attempts to lengthen the school day, bolster charter schools and close underperforming schools. Resolute is run by Greg Goldner, Emanuel's 2002 congressional campaign manager who also runs a political fund aligned with Emanuel's interests."

So, kind of like a Super PAC. If only Rahm could coordinate!

Penalty Flag
Rahm's touchdown called back.

Heartland of Darkness
"Confidential documents leaked from inside The Heartland Institute, a wealthy think tank based in Chicago and Washington, detail strategy and funding for an array of activities designed to spread doubt about climate change science, paid for by companies that have a financial interest in continuing to release greenhouse gases without government interference," the Age of Australia reports.

"Among the recipients of funding is Professor Bob Carter of James Cook University, a geologist and marine researcher who spoke at the 'convoys of no confidence' protests against the carbon price last year.

"The documents show Professor Carter receives a 'monthly payment' of $US1667 ($A1550), as part of a program to pay 'high-profile individuals who regularly and publicly counter the alarmist message.'

"Professor Carter did not deny being paid by The Heartland Institute, but would not confirm the amount, or why it was paying him."

Pill Bill
"A Chicago doctor who prosecutors say dispensed more of the powerful painkiller oxycodone from 2003 to 2005 than any other physician in the country was sentenced Tuesday to four life terms in the overdose deaths of four patients," AP reports.

"Dr. Paul Volkman made weekly trips from Chicago to three locations in Portsmouth in southern Ohio and one in Chillicothe in central Ohio before federal investigators shut down the operations in 2006, prosecutors said. He was sentenced in federal court in Cincinnati."
