    Turns out Rod Blagojevich doesn't find prison life all that enthralling.

    Blagojevich's former attorney, Sam Adam Jr., told Sun-Times columnist Michael Sneed the ex-governor is "totally bored."

    Adam said Blagojevich wants to teach instead of working in the prison kitchen washing pots and pans. He particularly would like to teach Shakespeare, ancient Greek philosophy or mythology.    

    Prison rules say inmates must do low-level jobs for the first 90 days, but Blagojevich, who entered the Littleton, Colo., prison on March 15, is beyond that.

    Blagojevich is serving 14 years for corruption.
