Shortshanks to Harvard
Former Mayor Richard M. Daley needed three tries to pass the bar exam. He was once so inarticulate that he took public speaking lessons to overcome that.
Mayor Rahm Emanuel has trashed his predecessor and political mentor virtually every chance he gets, even though he never mentions Daley’s name in a negative light.
But none of that has stopped Harvard, the nation’s most prestigious university, from offering Chicago’s longest-serving and now former mayor a “visiting fellowship” this fall.
