In no particular order:
The 183rd Fighter Wing was stolen by Ft. Wayne, Indiana with the help of the Bush administration.
Springfield might already have a smoking ban if the City Council would just stop screwing around and get it done.
The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum opens with Sen. Dick Durbin telling a dumb joke and George Bush comparing himself to Lincoln (another joke).
That’s it. Nothing else happened that anyone will remember.
Update: Jim Leach finds more to remember. Note that my top 3 are included in his top 4 (the other one was a state story by my strict, unyieding rules).
