KUDOS

Kudos to Illinois Wesleyan University for being ranked among the top 50 private liberal arts colleges in the list of "Top 100 Best Values in Public Universities" issued by Kiplinger's Personal Finance.

The 2,100-student school is ranked Number 34, compared to 37th last year and 50th in 2007.

The rankings are based primarily on such factors as student-faculty ratio and graduation rates.

GOVERNOR FAILS TO MEET TRIAL DEADLINES

The Senate impeachment trial of Governor Rod Blagojevich is moving forward – with or without the Governor’s involvement.

The Governor failed to meet a January 21 deadline to tell the Senate what witnesses and what documents he would like to subpoena for the trial. As such, the presumption is that the Governor pleads “not guilty.”

The Governor also failed to respond to the formal charge that he abused his power as Governor, and on January 20 also failed to meet a deadline to dismiss the charges against him. If the Governor had requested the charges be dropped, the Senate would have voted on his request.
