The State had a nice little victory party Tuesday afternoon after the mercury rule was finalized. State officials, environmentalists, and utility executives all gathered with Gov. Blagojevich to celebrate this unique accomplishment.
Of course, it's not a party if there's not a cake, so that produced this surreal touch
Yep, that's a No Mercury Cake. Quite good, actually.
The Governor was justifiably happy with the big win and made sure to thank everyone in the room, including Jen Hensley, Verena Owen, and yours truly.
