Chicago's a War Zone/Leadership With Photographic Memories who have no Film// Somebody needs to get Blamed/ A Scape Goat Please
When Chicago’s Mayor Lori Lightfoot was sworn in as Mayor of Chicago, she was asked about the City notorious epidemic of violence and what she proposed to do about it.  Her answer was not surprising since she was a progressive liberal who probably believed the late Father Flanagan, the founder of Boys Town orphanage in...
