I was happy to see Mayor Daley talking to James Sullivan, Business Manager of Plumber’s Local 130 in Chicago. It is good for a Union Boss to have the Mayor’s ear. Mayor Daley’s motorcade came screaming up in his fancy gas guzzling Lincoln, lights flashing, and sirens wailing. I was hoping Daley would ride a bike to save gas. I hope everyone enjoyed their Saint Patrick’s Day in Chicagoland. It is a shame Daley will not shake hands anymore. Photo by Patrick McDonough.
