Good morning subscribers. You’ve read my column on the disaster that is Mayor Lori Lightfoot here.
Now listen to the new edition of the Chicago Way podcast.
Here’s a window into writing a column, it begins by talking to smart people, like Chicago Inspector General Joe Ferguson. In this interview, Ferguson explains how Lightfoot used her intersectional identity politics narrative to obscure her truth: She was an insider. A Daley insider who refuses to learn from mistakes. And Chicago pays for those mistakes every day.
Haven’t yet subscribed to johnkassnews.com? Please do so, the Chicago Way podcast will always be free, though we’re looking for advertisers. And the columns and guest columns at johnkassnews are free for now, but not much longer. Since I’ve left ‘the paper’ without an income, I need to pay my bills. We’ll let you know more about this, but for now, I figure a subscription to johnkassnews.com would be a great Christmas gift.
