For a Wednesday:
- Hereditary politics - why don't we just declare a perpetual ruling class in Cook County and stop pretending that we have an unbiased electoral system? At least with kings and queens, we could have the occassional palace coup and public beheadings when the mob actually rose up. Sun Times, Channel 2, Channel 7.
- Aldercreature Burke continues with his insane idea to make food in Chicago taste like the crap they serve in Los Angeles. At least the schools are fixed and City workers aren't going to jail while tearing down garages on City time with City equipment, right?
- Body Snatchers contract being re-bid again. One of these days, no one is going to bid for this thing and we'll be back to wagons carrying out the dead again.
- Burge Report today! Other coverage here. We heard that HQ has two cars standing by at the courthouse to pick up copies which will then be given a quick escort to Kinko's and then to all the exempts at 35th Street. Numerous PAR forms are standing by in the event of a need for mass retirements.
