The Beachwood Reporter reflects on the implications of the latest in Cook County's government by nepotism:

"I'm sorry, Mr. Steele, we'd like to place your child in the school of your choice, but we're going to give that slot to the principal's kid instead."

"I'm sorry, Mr. Steele, your daughter would be a great candidate for that job but we're going to give it to the manager's kid instead."

"I'm sorry, Mr. Steele, but those jobs are restricting to the children of those who already have them. They think it would be best for the citizenship that way."

Somewhere Harold Washington is crying.
