“We had 40 years of a man and his son running the city of Chicago,” Fabian tells WBBM Newsradio’s Steve Miller in a wide-ranging interview. “No candidate who is nominated should have more than two terms.”

He declines to answer whether he’s a Republican or a Democrat. He says he tries to work out three or four times a week at the North Suburban YMCA.

“Sometimes I get tired, you know?” says Fabian, who retired at age 102.

He’s not much of a drinker.  But Max Fabian smokes a cigar every day.
