EXTRA: Kirk upgraded to “good”

Why do I suspect this will be the high point of the news cycles this week?

Seriously, it is encouraging to learn that Sen. Mark Kirk, R-Ill., was upgraded to “good” condition at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, within just a couple of weeks of suffering the stroke that has caused him to undergo a few rounds of surgery.

IT MAY WELL be sometime this month that he gets to go home to continue his recuperation, although doctors indicate his recovery is a long-term process and one that could result in paralysis to one side of his body.

And no, I don’t have a clue who Kirk was rooting for Sunday night while watching the Super Bowl from his hospital room.
