Heh. Interesting question about a possible leak: didn't you say, John, that the new shower stall is on 6, right above the Mayor's office? Bet there'd be a right ruckus if anything dripped on *his* desk!

Shower gate is chicken feed compaired to the millions that have been stolen by Daley, his family and the rest of his patronage crew. Why hasn't he been locked up yet when so many of his top people have been in the joint.

Where are the eight-by-ten colour glossy photographs with circles and arrows and a paragraph on the back... You think video is better than eight-by-ten colour glossy photographs?

John: I know trying to balance the City's budget with the people who run the city is enough to make any decent person sweat all day long. However, I want to know if Union Contractors did the work. If so, how much did they have to put into someone's re-election campaign? Did anyone use a Silver Shovel to dig the hole for the shower floor? How old was the building inspector who approved the work before the shower was put into use?

John, I enjoy your column, even east of the big pond.
if you get Chicago partly cleaned, focus on Detroit, and its mayor and his political "family". needs heavy cleaning, maybe starting with federal degreasing?
