Great for reading once the voting is done. Got to give the Trib and staff reporter Bonnie DeSimone props for it.

Roland is just a terrific person, plain and simple, and with a great sense of humor. Case in point, rather than accepting the honorary status due him as a White Sox executive, he pays an annual membership to the Windy City Sox Fans. (We got his check last month.) When we announce that nomination letters for board offices would be accepted, he sent a non-nomination letter in for himself stating that he had "other commitments." That gave us a good chuckle.
