The Quinn bin . . .
Gov. Pat Quinn, our populist patron, had a unique way of saying thanks on the corner of happy and healthy this week.
El Jefe went shopping.
◆ To wit: On the day it was announced the iconic Walgreens drugstore chain had agreed to keep their headquarters in Illinois — and not take advantage of tax breaks overseas — our irrepressible governor went shopping.
◆ To wit, again: Quinn, who claims he is nearly a daily shopper at Walgreens, hit their flagship shop at State and Randolph streets Wednesday afternoon to buy a few things after the good news.
◆ Quinn’s grab bag included:
1.) Shaving cream.
2.) Razor blades.
3.) A new toothbrush.
4.) Granola bars.
5.) A banana.
6.) And a strawberry smoothie before exiting — after careening over to the medical aisle to say hi to the pharmacist who gives him his flu shots.
◆ Supplication: Sneed is told Quinn also spoke with Walgreens chief Greg Wasson over the phone Wednesday and thanked him for sticking with Illinois.
