The Reader's Ben Joravsky On FixWilsonYard's Suit

Ben Joravsky of The Reader can be heard on the "Mr Radio" podcast discussing the Fix Wilson Yard lawsuit and his opinion on Chicago TIFs in general. Interesting stuff: listen here. (The entire thing is less than seven minutes long.)

While we're on the subject, does anyone know where all the reader comments on Ben's story about the lawsuit went? There were quite a few posted, and now -- poof!

Update: The Reader points out another newsworthy example of bad TIF spending, where the taxpayers are, as always, left holding the bag: Republic Windows.

Another Update: The comments are back on Ben's story about the lawsuit.

  1. Oh Benny boy is torn. He hates TIFs and can't let go of his outdated version of Helen. I'm betting though that Helen told him to take down the comments.

    Benny, you can't block truth from coming out. There's a reason why the Reader is losing its popularity.
