Jim Dey doesn't like the jeers the Gov received at the celebration for the University of Illinois basketball team.
I see the People of Illinois when the Gov appears and feel he deserves respect as a symbol when he shows at an event like this. I realize Pols use symbolism for political gain too; so it's a fine line. I'm not bent out-of-shape by hecklers. I just wouldn't do it at a basketball celebration. Everything is balance.
