After meeting Mayor Daley for the first time and hearing him speak last night at a young professionals event, I gotta say that despite the corruption of some of the questionable characters in City Hall, no mayor in America is working as hard for his city as Mayor Daley. The history of our city is one of rapid change and optimism, and Daley's views on building new schools, investing in economic development, and remaking public housing certainly fit with that spirit.
It was a nice event, probably 800 people, most of them shiny and beautiful. One question, though: Who doesn't wear an undershirt under their collared shirt, especially if they have lots of chest hair? I'm talking to you, Mr. Perillo.
