Sharp eyed readers spotted this strange happening - not even 10 days ago:
- "Mayor Richard M. Daley won't have to testify in City Hall’s lawsuit to break a contract the Park Grill restaurant in Millennium Park was awarded under Daley.
After reviewing affidavits on Daley’s medical condition behind closed doors, the Park Grill’s operators and lawyers agreed Wednesday to withdraw their subpoena to have the former mayor testify."
- ......Daley data . . .
"Former Mayor Richard Daley was spotted at new Oak Street hot spot Fig and Olive Thursday night, according to a Sneed source.
He “came for drinks at the bar, then sat for dinner and socialized at the bar after dinner. He is seemingly vibrant and in great health . . . looks great!” the source said."
The reader commented:
- WTF? Well, here is proof positive that our hospitals are doing a fantastic job. Not only should they get major kudos for keeping the homicide rate low, but they have been able to bring back former mayor Daley from the brink. It was only a mere 11 days ago did we read that the former mayor was TOO SICK to be deposed for the Park Grill debacle but now we see that he's healthy enough to travel to one of his favorite spots for drinks, dining and socializing.
Will there be a re-scheduling for his deposition?
Someone ought to ask the judge about this "miracle."
