Two of the aldermen facing runoff elections have never been elected before; they were appointed by the mayor. WBEZ's Sam Hudzik looks at how the mayor made those choices and what it means for the appointed aldermen. Then, author David Sirota explains why the '80s is to blame for the current economic crisis. And Nick Rabkin discusses the ties between arts education and future arts participation.
