Let’s catch up with the myriad ways your elected officials are serving you.
* “Ethics Held Hostage, Day 351,” in which the Tribune editorial page wonders if the Illinois Senate is the place where government for the people goes to die.
* “Monitor Tells Of Patronage Claims,” wherein we learn that Todd Stroger claims patronage does not exist in Cook County government.
* “District Signs Off On Museum In Park,” which describes how the Park District is a co-applicant – rather than a guardian – in the Children’s Museum’s proposed move to Grant Park.
In other words, you, dear citizen, are incidental to the workings of the Machine.
