For all those lies that you told, boy

Teh Mayor on the Chicago Housing Authority's Plan for More Gradual Than We Thought Transformation:

"I said we’re going to rebuild their souls. Not give them an apartment, not give them a home, but you rebuild their souls."

1) that's really creepy and probably a First Amendment violation

2) no, it was about building fucking apartments like the article said

3) is the Plan for Transformation now some kind of cross-promotion with the Stir the Soul 2016 Olympics?

I wish WBEZ ran more raw audio of Mayor Daley freaking out, not just for my own sorry amusement but as a public service, but the clip is worth listening to anyway.
