I’ll now have a regular, monthly column in the Government section of Crain’s Chicago Business, both online and print editions. It will appear around the middle of each month.

The first is linked here. It’s about why “balanced” claims about government budgets in Illinois are so dishonest. Wirepoints readers learned that long ago, but we’re glad to be reaching a broader audience.

I’m happy to report that Crain’s published it and my earlier pieces as I submitted them with no edits. They didn’t even object to the shot I took at their editorial board in the first line of the new article!

Iiiiinteresting. Congrats on the new column!


Good. Would be nice if the mainstream media actually critically thought about the situation in Illinois and Chicago (and the counties) and accurately reported it. By the way, I know we realize Cook County is a mess but Republican led counties like DuPage, Kane and Lake are a mess too.
