I'm dreaming of a run-off between Fioretti and Garcia!

Re: “Running against Rahm means running for the mayoral runoff

Fioretti's beef with Felony Franks was not his brightest moment, and there IS nothing he can do about the beat up streets in Ukrainian Village...as Ben pointed out a couple of weeks ago when he rode his bike around town. Rahm wants you to think he's making tough decisions like making retirees pay more for health coverage and NOT filling potholes because big donors need to be repaid with deals like the Marriott Hotel and the $29M TIF handout that was on hold or dead after the 2008 collapse only to magically reappear a couple of years ago...and don't forget Mariano's, the ONLY food store chain to receive TIF funds. Follow the money back to the big contributors. It's not that hard. I would vote for Fioretti over Rahm any day! Neither are perfect but I believe Bob understands what Chicago needs more than Rahm does. And Karen Lewis will work with Bob, even if she runs.

Re: “How to win Rahm's love if you're running for alderman

Barbara, do you really believe that? Name one "idea" Rahm has had that has been beneficial to most, if not, all Chicagoans?

Re: “Who's playing a beloved old album at Riot Fest? And who shouldn't be?

I completely agree about SLAYER'S "Reign In Blood!" In 2003 when I saw them play this album at the Aragon, I knew I had to see it again and flew to Seattle the week of Thanksgiving to see them again at The Moore Theatre. The only drawback was being in the balcony and not in the pit!

Re: “Mayor Emanuel and aldermen vow to implement pot law they already vowed to implement

Burnett would have held it for him!
