So Rahm Emanuel thinks he's next in line as Mayor of the City of Chicago. I want to go on record as saying "No thank you, sir". Respectfully, no. No, but thank you for your interest.
When the current Mayor of the City of Chicago leaves office, the time will have long since come for a reform Mayor. A breath of fresh air. Someone to clear the fear out, the tepid pall that settles so low on the civic meetings I attend, where no one dare speak ill, even slightly, of the boss, or the system.
The slow, deliberate smiles that stymie will have to stop when the time comes. So no thank you. My great hope is that we'll have other plans, and our own heroes to hold high by then.
