Governor Pat Quinn speaks about his longtime support of the power of recall.
October 15, 2009
SPRINGFIELD Governor Pat Quinn, long Illinois leading proponent of the right to recall, today congratulated the voters of Illinois on an historic victory the General Assemblys vote to put the Recall Amendment on the November 2010 ballot.
I have always believed that the highest office in the land is the office of citizen, Governor Quinn said. No Governor who fails to perform should be allowed to disregard the will of the people. Every elected official should be held accountable by the citizens of Illinois not just on Election Day, but every day.
Quinn has supported the right to recall at every level since 1975, both as a citizen and as an elected official. Although he believes that recall efforts should not be undertaken lightly, Quinn says the mere possibility of recall gives elected officials an added incentive to deal squarely with the voters who put them into office.
When everyday people fail to perform on the job, their employers dont have to wait for two or three years to show them the door, Quinn said. The people of Illinois pay the Governors salary; they should have the right to fire a Governor who doesnt perform as promised.
By contrast, Comptroller Hynes has been an outspoken opponent of the peoples right to recall shoddy, lazy, or deceptive elected officials. In a 2007 letter to the Chicago Tribune, Hynes said: But the beauty of representative government is that if the voters dont like someone, we can vote him or her out of office next time around. Voters also have the frequently used opportunity, in mid-term elections, to handcuff an underperforming executive by voting his or her party out of power in the Legislature.
As a lifelong believer in the power of democracy, Governor Quinn said he is grateful to the General Assembly for understanding that voters deserve the right to take immediate, direct action to unseat a failing, dishonest Governor.
Todays vote is the culmination of 30 years of hard work on behalf of Illinois voters, Governor Quinn said. This is the ultimate ethics reform giving the people of Illinois the power to decide for themselves how best to handle a Governor who isnt up to the job.
The right of recall has been endorsed enthusiastically on the editorial pages of newspapers statewide, including the Chicago Tribune, the Daily Herald, the Rockford Register Star, the Belleville News-Democrat, the Champaign News-Gazette, the Daily Illini, the Bloomington Pantagraph, and the Decatur Herald and Review.

WASHINGTON, DC – The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), in cooperation with Stork Craft Manufacturing Inc., of British Columbia, Canada, today announced the voluntary recall of more than 2.1 million Stork Craft drop-side cribs, including about 147,000 Stork Craft drop-side cribs with the Fisher-Price logo. The recall involves approximately 1,213,000 units distributed in the United States and 968,000 units distributed in Canada.
CPSC urges parents and caregivers to immediately stop using the recalled cribs, wait for the free repair kit, and do not attempt to fix the cribs without the kit. They should find an alternative, safe sleeping environment for their baby. Consumers should contact Stork Craft to receive a free repair kit that converts the drop-side on these cribs to a fixed side.
The cribs’ drop-side plastic hardware can break, deform, or parts can become missing. In addition, the drop-side can be installed upside-down, which can result in broken or disengaged plastic parts. All of these problems can cause the drop-side to detach in one or more corners.

WASHINGTON, D.C (January 20, 2010). – In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Graco Children’s Products is voluntarily recalling about 1.5 million strollers. The recall includes certain models of the Graco Passage, Alano and Spree Strollers and travel systems.
The hinges on the stroller’s canopy pose a fingertip amputation and laceration hazard to the child when the consumer is opening or closing the canopy. Graco has received seven reports of children placing their fingers in the stroller’s canopy hinge mechanism, including five fingertip amputations and two lacerations.
CPSC’s video news release includes soundbites from CPSC Chairman Inez Tenenbaum, Spanish spokesperson Arlene Flecha, and b-roll of the recalled Graco stroller.
For more visit CPSC.gov or call CPSC's Recall Hotline: (800) 638-2772,
Graco manufactured two different styles of hinge mechanisms for these stroller models. Only strollers or travel systems with a plastic, jointed hinge mechanism that has indented canopy positioning notches (see photo below) are included in this recall. The recalled strollers were manufactured between October 2004 and February 2008. The model number and manufacture date are located on the lower inside portion of the rear frame, just above the rear wheels.
TOYOTA MOTOR'S RECALL "NEWS"
*******funfactsandinfo.blogspot**** TOYOTA MOTOR'S RECALL "NEWS" Toyota Motor's sales in January tumbled 16%, compared to last year's weak demand, although most will also likely fall short of December sales levels. Ford Motor (F, Fortune 500) posted a 24% rise in sales compared to a year ago, enough to pass Toyota at least temporarily as the No. 2 automaker in terms of U.S. sales, behind only General Motors. Last month, Toyota (TM) recalled more than 3 million vehicles due to gas pedal problems which caused sudden, uncontrolled acceleration. On Jan. 26, Toyota suspended sales of the eight recalled models, losing much of the final week's worth of sales. Affected models include the Camry sedan, the Corolla compact and the Rav4 SUV, which are the company's three best-selling vehicles in the U.S. But sales of the numerous Toyota models not covered by the recall, such as the Sienna minivan and the Tacoma pickup, also tumbled. Sales at its luxury Lexus brand improved, but sales fell at its entry-level Scion brand. Neither of those brands were affected by the recall. While the company announced Monday it found a way to fix the problem, it will only slowly start selling those models again as it performs the fix on each vehicle on dealer lots. Many experts believe the damage caused to Toyota's reputation for quality vehicles will have a lingering effect on its sales, possibly causing its first drop in U.S. market share since 1994. A survey by Kelley Blue Book of people planning to purchase a car found that 21% of those who were considering Toyota before the recall no longer are looking at the brand, although 43% of those who have soured on the brand said they'll reconsider once they see how the solution to the recall plays out. *******funfactsandinfo.blogspot****/
