As Dick Durbin turns
The Trib's Editorial today on the dizzying twists of Sen Durbin on Sen Burris. Forget fairness to Roland. It's the people of Illinois this is about Sen Durbin.
Sen. Durbin, you were right the first time. Demand a special election to choose Illinois' junior senator. Allow Illinois voters to extricate ourselves from this ugly scandal with a dose of democracy. Fair to Burris? Be fair to your constituents.
