A Rainbow of Changes?

Never let it be said that Fran Spielman couldn't turn a phrase:
  • Eager to reverse the exodus from his sixth-term cabinet, Mayor Daley made a rainbow of personnel moves today.

    He promoted his white budget director, named an African-American replacement from the private sector and appointed a Hispanic executive director for the city’s Office of Emergency Management and Communications.

Fran continues to carry water for the Daley administration as she always has. In this day and age, it's truly sad that the media just couldn't say that:
  • "Three highly qualified individuals were promoted or hired for positions to ensure the continued safety of the citizenry and smooth running of city government."
But since that entire paragraph would be a complete lie, we guess Fran has to publish a version of what really happened:
  • "Continuing to pander to the various ethnic blocks that owe the mayor and, in turn, are owed by the mayor, a white guy, a black guy and a brown guy were put into positions of power where they can exert undue influence over millions of dollars that they most likely have no skills or talents whatsoever to administer."
We could actually respect a paragraph like that one.

First Deputy Police Supt. Dana Starks had been angling for the $162,912-a-year OEMC job. But, the mayor chose to go with an experienced hand.

Actually the brown skin guy as you put it- is highly qualified and has the experience to do the job.

I also might ad that the position Starks is probably seeking is Cortez Trotter job, not the OEMC.

I believe Starks just may get it.

Scc Dude, Can you a do week of moratorium on this overtly rascist crap. This city is filled with all ethnic groups. This is not "The Gangs Of New York", you so called natives. When I put this uniform on I don't care the color of the other guy in blue. I come to help, or save his ass period. The guys that run this city aren't MEEKS, JESSIE,or other Black or Hispanic. It's been the same team, Irish Richie II. Cut the crap. If you don't like Dana, or some other brother you think might be sleeping with your neglected wife, GET A PAR FORM AND ANOTHER JOB.

If it weren't for us, 011 would have over three times more murders.

Best district for backup in the city, bar none. Also, a big Fillmore shout-out to all you guys that will be detailed in to Garfield Park for the summer.

I dont think he was commenting on the skin tone of those who got the jobs but the way it was reported in the paper.

I think he was saying why should the paper report on the skin tone of the people who got the jobs. Why is that important to anybody, let alone worthy of publishing in th sun times?

I think he was commenting on the "politically correct" and overly color concious nature of the media in this day and age.

Thats what I got out of it but Lord knows smarts isnt my strong point. I cant even spell.

"detailed in to Garfield Park for the summer."

Why is a detail necessary in Garfield Park? So the tourists don't get murdered while going to the Consevatory.

Funny, they don't need a detail for Lincoln Park,Mt. Greenwood or Norwood for that matter.
Anytime the Fillmore Warrior wants to chime in as to his "calling" to those in need on the Westside be my guest. GOOF!!
