Simon: The Next Generation

Sheila Simon, daughter of the late U.S. Senator Paul Simon, announced yesterday she is running for mayor of Carbondale. Currently she’s a Carbondale City Council member.

Another Senator Simon from Illinois someday?

I do miss the late Senator: the bow-tie, the ears, the glasses, the voice... and his politics were pretty good too.

Paul Simon was a great man.

His wife was no slouch either.
