We are tired. But we couldn't leave you with nothing today, so here are some quick hits. Free Registration may be required at some sites.
- Dogs being used by soldiers to detect explosives and by "insurgents" to deliver them. Someone call that Animal Abuse team that operated out of Housing and let them know about this please.
- Daley dodges more questions about running again. We are stilling hearing a whispers of a rumor of a story that he won't even stick around to finish his term. Let's face it, the support isn't there at the moment if he did run in 2007, BUT as the republican party is non existent in this county, all Daley has to do is win a primary battle. If Jesse Jr and Gutierrez run, they'll split the minority votes, Daley wins anyway. If Jr runs solo, watch for a tame minority to split the black vote, and Daley wins again.
- Look at this! Nephews of a mobbed up aldercreature have been tied to paying bribes to a Hired Truck scandal figure for more than a decade. If anyone tells us this city and yes, this department, aren't still run by Outfit interests, we'll tell them to go soak their heads. Also, the 23rd conviction has been entered for Hired Truck. We are beginning to approach "Greylord" type numbers for convictions with no end in sight. Go Fitzgerald Go!
- And once again, the clinton years come back to haunt us. The slum-times, Captain's Quarters, Little Green Footballs, FoxNews and others cover the recent news that a Government program named "Able Danger" actually tracked muhammed atta and his cronies as a "probable al-qaeda cell" months BEFORE 9/11, but because of the restrictions on sharing information between intelligence agencies, no one could put the pieces together and initiate action. Thanks again bill and hill!
