The Illinois State Fair opens

Gov. Pat Quinn cut the ribbon at the Illinois State Fair today, and there wasn't much new to learn from the governor when reporters asked him questions after.

He declined to say whether he'd sign into law legislation that raises the interstate and tollway speed limit to 70 mph, for example.

But we did learn this:

"I had three pork chops on a stick last night," Quinn said.

That is dedication.
