Isn't it Interesting?
... that whenever there seems to be something resembling bad news on the mayor's doorstep, someone manages to dig up some dirt on the Department and use it to give politicians political cover?
- Bad news for the mayor - A Channel 2/Pam Zekman investigation reveals a massive EPA-type nightmare brewing below the surface of what used to be Meigs Field.

So what does the sun-times cover?
- Ex Partner of 'most corrupt' cop out of prison - Big story? Not really when you find out that Galligan was released to home confinement on 09 August 2005, over THREE AND A HALF MONTHS AGO! What could possibly be the point of bringing up old news like this? Anyone? Bueller?.
