I just listented to Governor Pritzker of Illinois give an update of what is being done to stop the

spread of the virus.

...He sounded very intelligent and knowledgeable. He touched a number of bases, and said he had sought help from experts from a number of areas. He had on other leaders of the state with information that they had and the contacts that they had made. Most important, it was clear that he had done his homework and gotten significant information on this subject and made it also clear that the purpose of the rules he was trying to put into effect was simple: to save lives, and stop the spread of the virus. He did sound as though he cared deeply about people and what is happening and the deaths and illness in Illinois. What else is there to say?

1. The Pritzkers are like that.

Very down to earth. Very community minded. They usually focus on healthcare, education, and the arts.

2. He's remarkable

So proud that I voted for him.

Only other comment: Iíve watched these press conferences almost daily, and I do get a little kick out of the contrast between Governor Pritzger (a shall we say large and hefty figure) and the diminutive (but no less smart and powerful) Mayor Lightfoot. We need a little giggle these days.

3. He might not have been my first choice

but I am SO GLAD we have him and not Rauner. He's really stepped up. Good to know there's real leadership on the state and city levels at least, even if we don't have it federally.

5. I am very impressed by him.

He is one of the "good billionaires".
