And here you thought we would spotlight Ben Joravsky of the Chicago Reader. Don't worry Chicago: that spotlight is certainly coming. We had to push our Joravsky People With Passion post back a week, so when it drops on Wednesday, you'll be able to read plenty about Joravsky the brilliant political writer.
For now, Eye On Chi would like to give a shout out to our man Benny Jay, Mr. Joravsky's alter ego over at The Third City. Joravsky writes with a loosey-goosey free-associative flow, combining commentary and narrative to cover topics as diverse as Smart Person Movies, What if Frank Serpico worked in the Penn State football department?, Jews writing Christmas songs, and Rip Hamilton's groin.
Keep 'em coming Benny!
