I must be doing something right when Mayor Daley and Neil Steinberg disparage my work in the same week.

In his column this morning Steinberg writes that the gun-ban question I asked Mayor Daley last week was “dumb.”

Steinberg is one of the most entertaining misanthropes in town, not to mention a true genius at self-promotion. But his reasoning, at least on the matter of questioning the mayor, is highly suspect.
