CHICAGO (AP) - Aretha Franklin's spokesman says the Queen of Soul is grateful to the state of Illinois for its help when her tour bus broke down on the way to Chicago. Transmission problems stopped the bus around 1:20 a.m. Monday a few miles from downtown on eastbound Interstate 290. Franklin's assistants couldn't find a car service with an available vehicle. That's when the Illinois State Police stepped in. Three units from ISP, and three from the Illinois Department of Transportation, drove Franklin and her entourage to their hotel. Franklin's reaction?
