I Want Wednesday

I want to always be this busy at work. The days just fly by!

Mayor Emmanuel

It still doesn't sound right. I mean, "Mayor" and "Daley" is how the Lord intended it. Still, if Richard M. Daley insists on abandoning us ... I mean, RETIRING, this is the best possible outcome. After all, Rahm is familiar. He's been on my radar since those long ago 1990s when we were both Clintonistas.

The most encouraging thing about the final results is that Carol Mosely Braun is finally done. City Clerk Miguel del Valle did better than she did, which is heartening because he had no money and minimal name recognition but he did offer dignity, values and genuine ideas -- three things Carol's campaign was completely devoid of.
