You Don’t Piss Off Mayor Daley

While we were living in Chicago, a ComEd tripped up and a good chunk of the Loop was without electricity in the middle of the day. People stuck in elevators, the business day ground to a halt.

I have vivid memories of Mayor Daley reaming out ComEd on tv that evening. The problem was fixed promptly and ComEd took responsibility. His dad was the same way. Daleys get shit done can’t tolerate hemming and hawing. I always respected that.

I can only imagine the steam coming out of his ears as the Fed’s decline his offer of assistance in cleaning up Lake George.

“We are ready to provide more help than they have requested. We are just waiting for their call,” said Daley, adding that he was “shocked” that no one seemed to want the help.”
