Once again, the political machine grooms a son to take over for the father - and no, we aren't talking about the police department at the moment:
- Ald. Todd Stroger (8th) said Thursday he's qualified to succeed his father -- and confident of victory -- if a stroke suffered by Cook County Board President John Stroger prevents him from remaining on the Democratic ticket.
When are we going to get around to disbanding this completely outdated, outmoded and money wasting arm of government? We need to really get serious about reducing the size of municipal and county government. They are overly burdensome.
