Re: “Can a 26-year-old beat Rey Colon in the 35th Ward?

Wait a minute - this article does not mention the fact Mr. Rosa worked for Congressman Luis Gutierrez. Gutierrez just backed Rahm Emanuel for mayor. So what is all this talk about positioning himself as an "alternative" to Emanuel's loyalists on City Council. If you believe this, Mr. Fishman should have a few bridges in his developmental arsenal to sell ya. Better yet, I'm sure Mr. Gutierrez owns most of the surrounding land with buildings to boot around the bridges. He's quite the real estate guy himself you know (check out Chicago Tribune article on Gutierrez's millions in real estate holdings he's amassed while in office!).

Re: “Why did Mayor Emanuel stonewall the Tribune?

However the Trib is not demanding anything from this administration as a result. No follow up or pressure on politicians to do anything. Shouldnt the city prosecute?

Hardly consoling - Jane joined the machine once elected.

Re: “Was knowledge of priestly sins ever used to muscle the church?

They say the US unleashed all the priest sex abuse information in the media after Pope John Paul protested the Iraq war, as well as capitalism per se. Not sure about the timing though.

Re: “You go to print with the sources you've got, not the sources you want

How about these hapless chicago mainstream papers putting out an equal warning: news fit to print according to our corporate masters!
