The gays were all over the news this week. Brendan Dowling and Tim Sniffen agree with Brett Ratner when he said what he said about rehearsal and who it's for. Coya Paz explains how clinics in Equador that try to convert homosexuals are the exception, not the rule.
"Chicago style" or the "Chicago way" of doings things can be a funny thing--cultural quirks--like the unwritten rule that hot dogs be dressed with celery salt, not ketchup. But the city also earned a reputation for shady politics and back-room deals.
Each Friday afternoon, I give this sacred blog space to Alderman Ed Bus. The 53rd ward alderman has been in the Chicago City Council for over 40-45 years and is an avid follower of Chicago news, politics and gossip.
For the longest time, I've lived two lives. One as an aspiring blogger/journalist who tells it like it is. Another, a very old alderman from a very old and fictitious Chicago ward. If you aren't aware of my background, I am a member of the sketch comedy group Schadenfreude.
