^ I guess I like Rahm for the very reason he is unpopular among 'Chicawgoans'. To be honest, the more he pisses off the vested interest groups, the more I like the guy.

My father in law visited Chicago with us a few weeks ago and was curious why there are so many people employed to direct traffic at intersections downtown, when we already have traffic lights. I couldn't answer it. Interestingly, 100% of them are African American. Something kinda fishy about that.

Vested interests, people, on the public dime...
Gentrification is the work of God. If you have a problem with that, well then—sorry. But you will fail trying to fight it. Gentrification will win. Development will win. But that doesn’t make you a loser. Your job is to colonize new areas, and open them up to future gentrification!
