My current interest in the current affairs betting markets is of a non-political kind. In the spirit of the silly summer season I am researching that major cultural event the Oscars and will attempt to repeat my Blagojevich good fortune with a dollar or two on the best film and best director. Keep watching this space.

I am counting down the minutes of this old year with greater enthusiasm than normal having backed Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich to still be in office as 2009 rolls in. When the market back in early December had him only a 20% chance to keep his job by year's end I could not resist a wager and I hope some of my readers copped the tip. As I wrote at the time, I doubted whether the Governor's Illinois colleagues would really have the enthusiasm to move quickly agaisnt him.
