Good Works 

Just a note to say thanks for printing Ben Joravsky's articles [The Works]. I was born and raised in this city.

I also studied, worked, and have been politically active here for decades. Though I've never met him, I can tell from his writing that Joravsky knows Chicago as well as anyone in the media, maybe as well as anyone at all.

By uncovering the corruption, waste, delusion, and lies that have taken over Chicago government since Harold Washington died, Ben's writing also uncovers hope that there may someday be another serious movement here to create a truly great city.
