Illinois man

I never met the man, nor do I remember ever seeing him at a pancake breakfast – and Grandpa Sisco dragged me to countless of those – but he certainly fills the speaker’s seat now. See this New Yorker interview with Jonathan Franzen, who wrote a profile of Hastert in the current issue of the magazine.
