Senator Mark Kirk Visits Office in Gearing Up for Return to Work (UPDATED)
Here's a nice Christmas present (and a belated Hanukkah present) for fans of Senator Mark Kirk - the AP reports that he visited his U.S Senate office briefly as part of his preparation for his return to work at the Senate, about a year after suffering a major stroke. Great news, and we are really looking forward to Mark getting back in the ring.
UPDATE 12/31/12: Things still seem to be on schedule for Senator Kirk's return to DC, according to the Sun Times. And guess who will be there at the Senate to greet him on his return. None other than "Uncle" Joe Biden. Of course, as President of the Senate, Biden gets to swear and re-swear the Senate members, so it's not like Biden is making a special trip. But it's almost enough to make you want to stay away...
