Oh, what a nice days it’s been. Except for the damp and the grey outside, I had no reason today to be crabby, didn’t find a bad politician today to pick on.
CBS 2′s Walter Jacobson takes a poll of commuters about the former governor of Illinois.
Have you seen an envelope from the government of Cook County in the mail today, with news inside about how our tax dollars are being spent?
So the world suspects that at the inauguration ceremony on Monday, Beyonce did not sing the National Anthem. She lip synced it.
Chicago without pigeons is like Chicago without the lakefront, or the lions at the Art Institute, or the Cubs, or City Hall.
It’s hard to believe, but there are some players in the news playing worse than the Fighting Irish.
In the great debate about guns, there are some unexpected things happening in the wake of the horrific shooting massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.

There’s no cheering the Chicago Bears this week, so I’m looking for something else to feel good about; to say “that’s fabulous,” and “right on,” and “go for it.”
CBS 2′s Walter Jacobson is grateful media coverage has died down about Jesse Jackson Jr., now that he has resigned his congressional seat.
It was a bad day today on the subway, knowing my 30 day pass is about to expire, and the cost of a new one’s about to go up next year.
Take it from a reporter who’s crabby all the time, or much of the time. Take it from me, that something wonderful has just happened in Chicago: hundreds of people called the Red Cross today to offer help to ease the suffering of Hurricane Sandy.
CBS 2′s Walter Jacobson talks turkey about the onslaught of commercialism and its impact on Thanksgiving.
Not much is being said anymore about presidential debates, but in Chicago, there’s a hospital debate to talk about; a great debate about Northwestern University’s famous Prentice Women’s Hospital.
Outside, on the Clark Street side of City Hall on Tuesday, a voter I met asked me about the presidential debate Monday night, which was watched by more than 50 million people.
I have a subway story to tell you; on the Red Line this morning, the train talk was all about cops, cops, cops, cops. Kind of like President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney talking all about jobs, jobs, jobs.
I’m a day late, but not too late, because it’s never too late to celebrate Columbus Day, and add to my reasons every year for why we should stop thinking of Italians as godfather gangsters, and remember what they’ve given to the world.
Are you planning to watch the presidential debate on Wednesday? I am, to see what President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney are like face-to-face, and hear what they say specifically about the economy.
If there ever were one, this is an “ouch” time in Chicago, being on pins and needles about the teachers and the mayor.
I’m all for getting into the swing of things – the crisis in public education, the slipping and sliding of our public schools, the boss man of City Hall, the boss woman of the Chicago Teachers Union, the parades, and those picket signs.
