In appreciation of Mayor Emanuel for going to Florida and Ohio to hustle votes for President Obama, I’m going to ease up on him—for the moment anyway.

Not going to give him grief for raising my water and sewer taxes or forcing that teachers’ strike or doling out dough to the charters, or closing the mental health clinics.

Well, that last one’s really asking a lot . . .

The point is—I take this presidential election very seriously.
