Governor Quinn has canceled all political speeches on the Director's Lawn for the second year in a row. He says the Black Ensemble Theatre will be taking the stage instead of Democratic leaders and candidates. Quinn says the whole idea is to make the event more fun and family friendly. He denies the notion that he's staying off the stage to make sure unions don't have a chance to boo him, like they did a couple of years ago.
