A contract's not bid on  to SUPES

While  outsiders must   jump through the  hoops.

The Board strings along

As if nothing is  wrong.

You're surprised that  we're  taken for dupes?

  • Problem here is that every board in this area has resolutions that "competitive bidding is disadvantageous, so we resolve to award a contract for --- to ---.

    In Metra's case, Pagano took the ironic way out of standing in front of a train, but I'm not sure what the equivalent would be for Byrd-Bennett. Hooking herself to a Van de Graaff generator would be too obvious.

    Of course "the Board strings along" is typical of any board appointed by Emanuel.

  • Something tells me this may be only Chapter (or verse!) One of the problem.

  • In reply to Margaret H. Laing:

    It always is.

    It used to be with anything brought up by the Sun-Times that it didn't appear that they had much of anything, but somehow the cases developed into such things as Hired Trucks and Kotschman. Shame, though, that management has pretty much given up on journalism.
