Ben Joravsky and Mick Dumke aren't the only reporters shaking the parking meter tree to see what falls out of it. Here's Fran Spielman today:

"LAZ Parking Chicago LLC has hastily assembled a team of subcontractors that includes former mayoral press secretary Avis LaVelle and Cortez Trotter, who was Chicago's first African-American fire commissioner before being promoted to chief emergency officer."

I guess it counts as an emergency. Read the whole thing, the last three paragraphs are pretty juicy.
