Walter’s Perspective: More Answers Needed About Upcoming G8/Nato Summits

CHICAGO (CBS) — In case you haven’t heard, there’s a new boss in Chicago, in City Hall: the woman in charge of the big NATO and G8 summit meetings coming up, with 80 heads-of-state, 3,000 reporters, 15,000 summit participants and maybe 20,000; 40,000; 50,000 rabble-rousers and anarchists, aiming to break up the summits and mess up Chicago.

Store owners, downtown and on Michigan Avenue, are concerned, but the boss wants us not to talk about that.

Lori Healey — former Mayor Daley chief of staff, current Mayor Emanuel’s honcho, honcho grande — barking at us for focusing on problems.

The negativity, she growls, is unproductive. Growl, growl!

She wants us not talking about protestors, or asking questions about $50 million for security.

Sorry, Ms. Honcho, those are important questions, so bark and growl all you wish, they’re the questions we ought to ask.

    The question I want answered is when are you going to retire, Walter? The older you get, the more clueless you get. You really think people are going to take you seriously when all you’re doing is being ignorant and calling people names? What kind of professional are you? You Sir, are pathetic and need to give it up already.

    Agree, Walter needs to go back to the rock he came out from…but, I guess he ran out of money.

  • Afro

    It’s reporting like this that is causing all of the problems why is all of this speculation and allegations being put out to the people it’s propaganda WALTER do you have proof that their aim is to do these things? Shame on you for trying to incite a riot! IS CBS ABOUT WALTERS OPINION OR REPORTING NEWS!

    20,000; 40,000; 50,000 rabble-rousers and anarchists, aiming to break up the summits and mess up Chicago.

    Besides Chicago is already messed up, you got men kissing men, you don’t know if women are really women. This stuff makes a person want to puke!
