"What’s Driving Chicago’s Political Dysfunction"

"We believe that the poor decisions have been made as a result of the structure of city government. It’s not due to the mythical Chicago Democratic machine, although that’s played a part. It’s not due to any one mayor. It’s not due to anyone daily, any one manual. It’s due to a very outdated, anachronistic form of city government that has all but disappeared from the United States but remains in play in Chicago."


"Leninthink"

I'd guess that anybody who's reached double-digit years on the planet needn't be reminded of just how awful people can be. But on the off chance that somebody you know does need to be reminded, may I suggest you send them to "Leninthink". (The author is a chaired professor at Northwestern.)

V. I. Lenin pegs the meter of how monstrous one person can be.
