While ChicagoNow works on restoring "recent comments" to the sidebar (they swear they're going to do it) here's a handy dandy look at where the comments are of late:
Call For Discipline Overhaul Be the first!
News: No Raises For Principals Be the first!
Gone Swimming / Open Thread 60 (about TeacherFit, mostly)
IL Needs "Race" Win To Fund SB7 8 (and the video/apology)
Note that my updates and comments are included in the count, which affects the numbers.
