    ...we have a farm 120 miles away from the "veil of tears" that we will be moving to within 2 years. If I didn't give a damn, I'd vote for either Emanuel or Chico, but having been a City employee for 27+ years, and having been born here, "juice" aside, I can't vote for either of them with a clean conscience. I worked for the City during Council Wars, and despite the rancor, the place ran, and everything looked up, especially after Washington won his second term. And then he died, and the bright future wasn't there any more. And then Boy Mayor got elected, and you know the rest of the story.

    A lot of the commenters here who don't live in Chicago seem to think if Rahmbo doesn't get elected he will go back to Washington. Probably, as a lobbyist or a think-tank wonk, but not back to the White House. That door is shut, period. I don't see why Chicago has to suffer to make everyone else feel good.

    He lost in the Appellate Court on a technicality. He has a shot with the State Supreme Court, and the printer is killing trees. Isn't that enough grief for us here in Chicago, people? That and the Cubs?
