Leslie's Omnibus

Whoa, Nelly!

Mayor Shortshanks just made a most interesting announcement:
Mayor Richard Daley says he will not run for re-election in 2011, saying it's "time for me, it's time for Chicago to move on."

"The truth is I have been thinking about this for the past several months," Daley said at a City Hall news conference that stunned the city. "In the end this is a personal decision, no more, no less."
Yowza! While I'm not completely surprised, as his wife has been battling cancer again this year, that's still going to throw Chicago politics into quite an uproar.

Stay tuned, boys and girls. It's about to get even more interesting around here!

You think Chicago finances are bad now. Imagine how much it's going to cost to take his name off all the signs...

This is going to get very very interesting. Who would want to run Chicago? I mean, it is sinking fast!
