In the shower of praise for Mayor Daley at his endorsement press conference, Senator Barack Obama left out one local matter on which he and the mayor disagree--Promontory Point.

For the last year or so, Obama has been participating in the effort to keep the mayor from removing the distinctive limestone rocks at the Point in Hyde Park and paving it over with concrete as part of a multimillion dollar lakefront revetment project.

With Obama distracted by his run for office will Daley feel free to start pouring concrete? The senator's old friends in Hyde Park will be watching.
