That was a good article. Thanks for sharing Lisa.
I hadn't realized how old he was.

Ben Joravsky of the Reader addressing what a lot of people have on their minds.
Hour after hour, day after day, I field calls and e-mails from the Daley haters of Chicago, bemoaning our fate now that Barack Obama has won the presidential election: Mayor Daley’s going to have too much power now, they say. Mayor Daley’s going to rule the world. Now the national media’s joined the chorus. This week Slate ran an article asking “Can President Obama say no to Mayor Daley?”
To which I say: You’ve got to be kidding.
The photo in the article is from Manny's, which is brilliant.
So Tariq Ali came to my school today to talk to us about Pakistani-American relations (He also spoke about the Obama's election showed a generation shift). He was lecturing the IB kids only. He was such a great orator. We were told to take notes but I found myself unable to..and I wasn't the only person.
For any of you not familiar with Tariq, he is an extremely well-known
activist, historian, novelist, and filmmaker.
It's true daley and barry a deadly combo. Olympics here we come.
Whatever sign me up.
Them dems run'ems.

President elect delivers taped address to IOC members
Obama arrived at Manny’s Cafeteria and Deli around 12:30 p.m. and ordered three corned beef sandwiches
Who has gone to Manny's here
I have. Manny's is great, really old school. They're famous for their corned beef sandwiches (they make their own corned beef from scratch), but I get the short ribs, and my sister's favorite is the potato pancakes. It's one of the few places in the city where you can get bagels that taste the way they're supposed to.
Hey Chicagoans...can anybody tell me what is the biggest event in Chicago for the 4th of July, biggest in terms of people attending...also, if there is such an event with a majority of Hispanics attending, or in a Hispanic area, much better.
The biggest event for the 4th of July is the last night of the Taste of Chicago, when there are fireworks over the lake. It's held on July 3rd every year. Estimates are usually around one million people on the lakefront. Off the top of my head, I don't know of any specifically Latino events around that time.
That'll do!, Thanks!...repped
manny's is like 5 minutes from where I went to high school...the bus would always pass by but I never went in...now I guess I have to try it. some ribs sounds good.
They're open for dinner now. Up until a year or so ago, their hours were something like 5 am to 2 pm. They also have valet, which is just bizarre. It's not cheap, and it's definitely not fancy, but it's Manny's and exactly what it's supposed to be:
I just wanted to remind everyone who hasn't been to the National Museum of Mexican Art in a while that the Dia de los Muertos exhibit closes December 14. I was there today, and it's brilliant. This year's exhibition is dedicated to those that died at Tlatelolco in 1968.
