The West Sides Funniest Home Videos

Click below to see this week's Chicago Reader article on the now-infamous and highly uncomfortable meeting at Edna's between elected officials and CPS honchos.  Titled "The West Sides Funniest Home Videos," the piece chronicles what what happens on the video when Derrick Harris and others barge in on a meeting between the officials, concerned that they were only pretending to oppose the closings of schools like Collins.

For a Reader piece, it's somewhat restrained -- making none of the usual claims about gentrification and conspiracy that you'd expect.  On the other hand, it's a pretty vivid scene. Download west_sides_funniest_home_videos.pdf
