Re: “Juanita Irizarry wants development done right in the 26th Ward

Juanita Irizarry sounds like another Chicago Political Hack!

Bang Bang Pie has supported numerous feminist causes in Humboldt Park and Logan Square. Juanita Irizarry is attacking is tossing a Progressive Young Women business owner over board for votes. I didn't hear her complaining about how her boss Pat Quinn used Violence Prevention Money as a patronage source as oppose to directing it into Chicago's violence played communities. She sounds just like
Roberto Maldonado! We need a radical, not another machine hack!

Re: “Township has parted ways with MP Shows [UPDATED]

One of my best friends ( who is good friends with Tamiz) had a group of WOMYN that use to meet at Township every other week at night when Peterson and his crew ran it. I sometimes showed up late for these events. One bartender was exceptionally rude. One night she turned off the light in the backroom when we were still meeting!!! I was 11:30pm and they close at 2:00pm, but I guess she wanted to leave early so this was her hint. We were the only group there, but it was a bunch of us still eating and drinking. The other bartender -who was actually nice- actually came over an apologized. My friend moved the group to another location shortly after that.

I look forward to now being able to go during the night, because I always go for brunch. I hope Tamiz actually diversifies the music. What about Jazz, Blues and World Music too? Spook is right. Logan Square doesn't need more businesses that just cater to the hipster bearded-Bro crowd.

Re: “My five stages of grief over Toni Preckwinkle wimping out of the mayoral race

To say Karen Lewis is unqualified is I'm sure exactly what Ben Joravsky would say. Karen Lewis runs ( The Chicago Teachers Union) what is basically a major corporation. She also beat Rahm with the CTU strike and mounted serious opposition that caused him to back on closing all the schools he wanted. This has made Karen a National Figure respected by the likes of Cornel West, Tavis Smiley, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Angela Davis, etc, yet she is called unqualified???

This is like the Harold Washington election with white Liberals like Ben Joravsky( just like Mike Royko) showing their true coolers, because every thing is fine in his neighborhood, which means for Ben it's all about an interesting race as oppose to Chicago leading the way in changing the country, which is exactly what Harold Washington talked about when he was running.

Ben Joravsky is past his prime

Karen VS Rahm is going to be a National Race with powerful implications for America, just when Harold Washington ran in 1983…

Re: “Preckwinkle says that she's not going to say whether she's running for mayor

"My bitter joke is that if you looked at the jail population, you'd think no white people live in Cook County," she said"

The bitter joke is that Toni Preckwinkle working in tandem with Mayor Daley's odious Democratic Machine created these very conditions, perpetuated by this current Mayor. Preckwinkle offers no solutions accept for "Chicago style reform", which means Chicago moving forward by moving poor and working class Blacks and Browns out.

Re: “Paradiso BÅ‚ekitna Przystan is the sexiest dog in Chicago

In all fairness the article should mention that his "wagging little stump of a tail", was a naturally long tail before it was hacked off along with his ears. If it's no longer a fighting dog, then why inflict the damage, just for show?

Re: “The anyone-but-Rahm crowd throws a rally!

Yes, Burman and IAC, now that Occupy Chicago is gone( because we totally ruined it) you two can get about the real business, because we were just taking up space that you two desperately needed for your "serious activism", which comes to trolling the reader. Chicago sucks because of people like you.
