More Federal Money
- It involves getting every bit of Federal money that the City can lay it's hands on,
- spending it on toys and nonsense and a few well paid positions for connected folks with the right last names,

- Chicago is one of eight cities that will receive funding from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security for transit security, the federal agency announced Tuesday.
According to a release from the department, Chicago was in line to receive $12.8 million in transit security funding in 2007. "Grant funding priorities include securing underground and underwater systems, reducing the risks of improvised explosive devices and radiological, chemical and biological weapons, as well as training, exercises and public awareness campaigns," the release said.
