STEVE INSKEEP, host:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.

Rod Blagojevich made a business out of being indicted for corruption. A Web site trumpets the former Illinois governor's enterprises. It says he's writing a book exploring, quote, "the notoriously complicated world of Illinois politics." It proclaims him the first former elected official facing charges to be named host of his own radio show. And he's available for public speaking. It is not clear if Blagojevich handles negotiations for payment himself. It's MORNING EDITION.
