Governor's brother not only one to lose job

Gov. Pat Quinn says the administration of his alma mater has let down students and alumni by firing his brother. John Quinn was let go as Fenwick High School head basketball coach. He has been a teacher for over three decades, which means that he is entitled to a cushy teacher's pension, but the governor had to castigate the Oak Park school by saying that it had "lost its soul."

I wonder if the governor is aware that hundreds if not thousands of people lose their job every day in the state that he leads. If the governor took the same view and with the same passion when other people lost their jobs, Illinois would not be at the top of the unemployment list.
