I can appreciate your frustration with the Tribune's Election 2000 site [March 31]. As a 49th Ward resident, aware of some peculiar things that have happened there recently, I was a bit curious about how Joe Moore piled up his large war chest.

So I tried to go to David Orr's site, which would supposedly provide me with donor lists and amounts for all county offices. However it turned out that whoever programmed the site never had it go through his head that TWO people with the same last name might run for office in Cook County. The search form had room for last names only, and try as I might, I could only get the numbers for a Moore whose first name came before "J."
