CPS Strike: I'm Just Going To Go Ahead And Say What You Are Probably Thinking

Karen is the president of the Chicago Teacher Union.  Once the contract is ratified and the teachers get the raise they want they should do two things.  One...find a new rep.  And two...chip in an buy Ms. Lewis a brassiere as a parting gift.  Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus and sadly, books are still judged by their covers.  If this is the face of the CTU...it needs an overhaul along with an attitude adjustment.
What we are witnessing here is a pissing match, you know? Oh, sure it is a circus…no doubt in my mind. But there is a side show going on at the big top. And it is a pissing match. Karen Lewis meet Rahm Emanuel. Rahm, let me introduce you to Karen. FYI…take a good look... Read more »

I don’t care if you are a member of Team Adam & Eve or Team Adam & Steve. You are entitled to your opinion and the right to eat a delicious chicken sandwich where ever you choose ~ the closer to home the better. More importantly, based on the Constitution, Americans are encouraged to express... Read more »

Jesse Jackson Jr: Hijacking A Disease Along with the Congressional Seat

Jesse Jackson Jr: Hijacking A Disease Along with the Congressional Seat
UPDATE:  I wrote this way back in November…when I suspected Triple J might use his “illness” to lighten a sentence should he be indicted and a jury find him guilty. Fast forward to May.  With a pending sentence on the horizon, sources over at Huff Post Chicago suggest exactly what I predicted.    Here is... Read more »

Blagojevich Goes To Prison: Random Thoughts And Observations

Blagojevich Goes To Prison: Random Thoughts And Observations
  My thoughts and observations regarding the last twenty-four hours as I watch Blago do what he does best…lead a three-ring circus from Illinois to Denver.  Apparently he read my letter yesterday. This SOB is going out “O.J. Style”. Fanfrickintastic.  Those of you who had money riding on last meal  coming from the kitchen of... Read more »

Casinos Will Not Tarnish Illinois' Reputation...It Has Been In The Crapper For Years

The City of Big Shoulders also offers athletes with danglers the size of coconuts...and even bigger egos.  Nothing yells  "Illinois-brings-over-paid-screaming-brats-to-the-arrogance-table" more than a temper tantrum thrown courtesy of Big Z.
Governor Quinn has put his “more-than-likely-purchased-at-Payless-Shoe-Store” wing tip down. Yesterday he took to the podium with a four-hundred-page bill (no doubt splattered with grease from whatever free lunch he scored the day before) and a message. The Casino Bill as it stands is not getting his signature. And, of course, ten more minutes of the... Read more »

Hey Stand Up! Chicago Protestors ~ Sit Your Asses Down

Hey Stand Up! Chicago Protestors ~ Sit Your Asses Down
Has this picture made it to your Facebook wall in recent days; or perhaps your e-mail inbox? Who knows if an actual College Senior wrote it. Look closely, do those look like the hands of a twenty-something? My point is not to dispute who authored the sign in the picture nor analyze the handwriting. I... Read more »

Chicago Bears Offer Refunds for Everything But The Disappointment

Chicago Bears Offer Refunds for Everything But The Disappointment
How many members of Bears’ upper management does it take to determine a field unplayable? Apparently about twenty. And, of course, one Lovie ”that’s a gooood question” Smith. He assessed the damage Friday afternoon while sporting a backpack (what the hell does he carry in that thing??) and a clueless look on his face (sadly, even more oblivious than... Read more »

HEY CPS: Any Room Left In The Dumpster For The Bad Apples?

HEY CPS: Any Room Left In The Dumpster For The Bad Apples?
Too bad it was a blockbuster weekend in the newsroom.    Consider the tragic news trickling out of Norway, the “shocking” (perhaps to you) reports from Casa Winehouse in London, and, really, who among us did not hang on every word of the  juicy gossip leaking out of the Cutler/KCav Camp?     Hey, were you aware there...

Why Rich Successful Women Get Burned By Men Who Cheat

I’m sick of hearing all the boo-hoo-ing about poor Maria Shriver…like she didn’t see this coming?  Time to get the Rx updated on the goggles.  How could she not see what was right in front of her face? Seriously, girlfriend…a. you’re a Kennedy…and b. he’s got a rich history with a fondness of groping…and c.... Read more »

Keeping it Real: Bin Laden Inspired Reality Shows

Understand the dynamics of a multi-spoused family each week as Osama's various wives share in depth info regarding being one/fifth married to the World's Most Wanted Man.  Swapping a night with the hubby isn't the only thing these simple gals share.  Tune in to see how they trade burkas, household duties, and creative ways to keep many children busy as they spend year after year in the exact same room.
Not sure about you, but I am becoming very overwhelmed with the 411 coming out of Pakistan ten days after Navy Seals got the deal done. Entertaining the news that a former sex slave of his is spilling her guts regarding Waldo’s admiration of Whitney Houston, I took a breath and decided to take it for what it... Read more »
