Today I had the honor of catching John Kass, the superstar columnist of the Chicago Tribune on a secret assignment. I am happy to have used the restroom of El Faro at 3936 West 31st Street and when existing found John Kass ready to make another great story on political dirty work in Chicagoland. We had a quick conversation about the Shakman agreement yesterday and I left. He was writing something on his “blackberry”. My question is, when Daley and the combine are stealing millions downtown, what is Kass doing at the Pulaski and 31st Street rough neighborhood? I bet a great story will be coming soon. If you want honest reports on the “Combine” read John Kass at the Chicago Tribune. I am still waiting for that coffee, Mr. Kass. Photo by Patrick McDonough.
