Geologic time: 426 days since Quinn said he was "put on earth" to fix Illinois pensions

Geology works at its own pace
Later today the Democratic-controlled Illinois General Assembly will meet in a special session called by Governor Pat Quinn to solve Illinois' $100 billion pension shortfall.. The debt grows by $17 million per day.

It was 426 days ago when Quinn said he was "put on earth" to fix the state's pensions. Since then the 2012 and 2013 spring sessions of the state legislature--when most of the work is done--have adjourned.

So what's going to happen at today's special session? Nothing. But a Quinn spokeswoman said that the Chicago Democrat will call another special session in "early July" to work on pensions.

What will happen in July? Maybe Quinn will decide to call for an August special session to solve this crisis.

Perhaps "Earthly" Quinn is working on geologic time.
