Daley Not Running?
- I was here two nights ago, talking about Mayor Daley running or not running for re-election and how every politician in town is talking about it, including the mayor's brother, Bill, who is the only person in town -- other than the mayor himself and his wife, Maggie -- who knows what Rich Daley plans to do.
I reported that brother Bill has been saying, in private, that the mayor is intending not to run.
Bill Daley called me and the Channel 2 news director and said angrily it's a lie, that he has never said to anyone his brother intends not to run, and he asked me to retract what I reported. I told him no because I trust my source, who has no reason to lie. But to be fair to Bill Daley, I should report tonight that he says he believes his brother will run for re-election.
Ten bucks says Skippy is being played by the mayor. And twenty bucks says Shortshanks is putting his underwear on Jacobson's head the way the Cubs used to do when Skippy was their bat-boy
