Roland

Is it just me, or is Roland Burris a little nutty and self-obsessed? There's the mausoleum he had built for himself, which lists his accomplishments. As Jon Stewart observed "lots of people do that: Napoleon, Ghengis Khan, a couple of the Caesars..."
Odder still, Burris's two children are named Roland Burris II and Rolanda Burris. That's right, he named both his children in honor of himself. Now, being egotistical to the point of disorder cannot bar one from entering the senate, but it sure is weird.
