SCC's Predictions for 2006 - Update

Someone was questioning the wisdom of SCC in predicting the future. Just a quick overview of our predictions we made on January 1st:
  • Local Politics - more indictments - True!
  • State Politics - Ryan convicted - True!
  • National/International Politics - predictions of split decisions in Congress - open; poll numbers - looking wrong; terror apprehensions - open; Iran & China - looking true; Iraq calming - looking true; Syria - open; prep work for a new war - looking true; Europe burning - looking true
  • Sports - Bears fall short - True!; Bulls make playoffs - True!; Blackhawks sink - True!; Cubs tread water - open; and Sox repeat - open
  • Department - Starks gone and Grau or Maher taking over - open; Lieutenant test - to be announced; Noelle Brennan - mysteriously silent
  • General - economy rolling - True!; GM losing money, jobs, DJI spot - 2 of 3 True!; Tookie still dead - True!; Hoffa still missing - True!; SCC Blog passes 1 million views - True!
So we're averaging, what? Sixty percent accurate with only 1 completely wrong predictions so far? Not bad. Not bad at all.

I predict that, although moral sucks, and everyone has something the love to bitch about (some things worth while, and some just whining), that there will still be plenty of open seats at the Union meeting at noon.
I further predict few will step up to the microphone and voice any concerns.

I predict Donahue gets indicted. The FOP backed George Ryan over Poshard when Nolan and Donahue were in power. I hope they all enjoy Oxford together.

Invasion of Iran? Crystal ball doesn't see that far, but within two years of today, we or the Israelis are bombing nuclear facilities.

Next president will be George Allen.

Define major. An elected official? It'll be at least two aldermen. Otherwise, the next big scandal is coming out of the County (either the jail or the Board itself - maybe John Daley.)
