My sister interviewing Barack Obama

She's a reporter for the Chicago Tribune.

She covers national politics in Washington.

I'm trying to sound cool but actually I'm SO INCREDIBLY PROUD OF MY BIG SIS!!!! JUST LOOK AT HER!!!

tech days

Okay I know you were actually looking at Obama but go back now and look at my amazing sister.

Her name is Christi Parsons. Remember that name. She's going places.

Okay, she already \*is\* places. Just look at her sitting right there with the President Elect. My Big Sis....

Here's the story she wrote after the interview. It's about Gov. Rod Blagojevich, who was arrested today on political corruption charges.

Comments:

ok first of all - Oh my GOSH!!! That is most definitely Barack Obama. My goodness. Go your sister!

second, Blago - it's a proud day for Illinois, isn't it? Though I sorta stick with the rest of Chicago in saying "Hey, don't look at us! corrupt politics is our business! what do you want!"

it's Chicago tradition. No surprise, sadly.

Thanks Sue!

Christin - 'Corrupt politics is our business, what do you want?' You're cracking me up. Well fortunately you guys have produced so many good presidents for us we won't kick you out of the union just yet. :) I guess you specialize in the extremes.

I can hear you jumping up and down with excitement for your sis! How totally cool!!! And wow, what a great family.

And, that Blago guy as Chrstin calls him is really gross. I think he is ever grosser than that tooth made of teeth in your last post....

Okay, I would be proud too!!! But here is my story: I shook hand with newly elected and in office Bill Clinton and Hillary in 1993 at the Jefferson Memorial in D.C.!! And now I want to see a pic with your sister and PRESIDENT Obama :-) Hugs, Andreas

Andreas - a challenge! I love challenges. Yes, I'll be sure to blog that picture when I get it.

Mountain Girl, those molars have set a whole new standard of grossness, haven't they?

Hi Melanie, I can imaging you are screaming with exciting and pride! ;-)

Hmmm, also proud to be part of Illinois because I obtained my MS from UIUC.

It has been quite some time since you wrote this blog. Do you have a new blog somewhere?
