The curtains are closing on the Chicago play, "I Wish to Apologize to the People of Illinois" -- a timely production, given that today, Dec. 9, is the fifth anniversary of Rod Blagojevich's arrest. Two trials later, he was convicted on 18 counts of corruption.
At Blagojevich's sentencing hearing, the deposed governor said he was sorry for his mistakes. But he was not the one making apologies in this show. He's not even a character -- just someone who gets mentioned now and again.
