Chicago paper: Disgraced Dem was a "Greek hero"
Posted by Staff
The Chicago Sun Times reports:

The Greek hero Icarus, son of the master craftsman Daedalus, was imprisoned on the island of Crete. According to Greek mythology, Daedalus built a magnificent pair of wings of wood and wax, and gave them to Icarus, with a warning: Go forth and fly, my son, but stay away from the sun, or your wings will melt away.

Icarus, full of ambition and hubris, flew high into the sky, ignoring his father’s counsel. He fell to his death.

U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. has crashed to earth. On Nov. 21, he resigned his seat in disgrace. Facebook Fark Furl
