Tone Deaf Rahm
Teacher walkout. Bond rating hovering around "junk" status. Homicides pretty much doubled over last year. And Rahm is where?
- Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel has a long list of enemies. Near the top is the Chicago Teachers Union, with which he’s feuded for his entire tenure as mayor. This past Friday, the union staged a one-day strike, closing schools across the city in order to draw attention to their latest round of negotiations with the city, which wants the teachers to accept cuts to pay, staffing, and budgets.
[...] But the many pressing issues facing the Windy City didn’t stop Emanuel from immediately jetting off to take in the best the Big Apple has to offer: “Hamilton,” the smash-hit Broadway musical. Above is a photo, taken by PhD student Brenden Beck, of Emanuel at Saturday’s 8 p.m. showing of the play that is changing lives.
Must be nice to not have a care in the world.
