Preseason plus some Quick Hits!

The Blackhawks just wrapped up the first pre-season game of the season - a 5-4 win over the Calgary Flames. We know, we know, the preseason doesn't mean bupkiss, but it's good to see NHL Hockey back. If only they could bring back the "old barn." On with the quick hits!
  • Officer to plead guilty to reckless homicide. Don't drink and drive people.
  • Ryan Harris case heads to a finale. Did everyone notice that as soon as the city council voted to encourage a settlement, pincham upped the asking price from $5 million to $10 million? Thanks a lot city council! You jackasses.
  • Another "Hired Truck" figure sentenced. Hey Frank? Fran? This is what real reporting looks like - learn something.
  • Blago continues to deny deny deny ... wait a minute, didn't george ryan say almost the exact same thing? EXHIBIT A - Blago says he knows nothing about any state pension deals being traded for campaign contributions. EXHIBIT B - Ryan says he knew nothing about any driver's licenses being traded for campaign contributions. Things that make you go "hmmm" and speculate that Frank and Fran are taking it in the shorts again.
  • And the daley endgame continues. After giving away $40 million dollars in "Hired Truck"deals, tripling the cost of the 911 Center, giving away a $6 million dollar parcel of land in Lincoln Park, spending $200 million over and above budget for a $150 million dollar park, building a parking garage that LOSES money downtown, giving away tens of millions to "minority" front companies, the mayor now wants to raise taxes and fees to the tune of $37 million. Get this - one bright idea is a first of its kind tax on delivery companies like FedEx and UPS for $5 million dollars. If we were FedEx or UPS, we'd pull services out of the city rather than pay this extortion and watch the business community howl for blood. Daley is toast.
UPDATE: Blackhawks win Sunday night 3-0 over the Minnesota Wild.

Hey M!

Where is the link for the qualifying matches for World Cup 2006? You know a game played by every nation in the world, not just the mainly white ones. Every nation in the world (except for about six) entered. Mother Russia appeared out of the running, but are making a strong comeback.

I will be pulling for Grant Fuhr to make the Hockey Hall of Fame. And cheering Anson Carter. Will he again be on the Bruins?

Who was the plain clothes cop tonight that kicked in the door on 119th street (5th dist) maced the dude yelling at the cops and recovered the pistol he had? It was funny. The guy thought nobody would screw with him because he was inside his door. He got quite a surprise! GOOD WORK!

We'll post World Cup stuff when they start the World Cup next year. Don't worry Lefty, we're fans of football, too, but when they spend two years qualifying, we don't want to burn out the newbies. And the good players are all still playing for their club teams anyway.

Hey 12:19; what was the final 38-6. One lucky play and they suck.
You must be one of the over reacting bosses on the job; ie like when one guy screws up punish everyone. Probably a Cubs fan who agrees with the annoucers how the Cubs ruined Chris Carpenter's CY YOUNG run. Don't write in again jagbag.

I guess the Roman Catholic Church is recruiting priests from prison.

Quick note. Commander Cronin was involved in a bad accident in 016 just a while ago and is in critical condition. Is this a bad omen? First Murphy, now Cronin. My prayers go out to him and his family.

This is the city of taxes. If the pols waste money, they just make us pay for it. The Dems love to tax us for their own perverse pleasure. The problem is we just keep paying and paying and don't do anything about it- like voting all these bums out of office.
