NBC: "Rebel Forces Gain On Daley Death Star"

Notably absent from the list [of 12 aldermen who failed to approve Daley's budget]: Toni Preckwinkle (4th), a frequent budget critic who is nonethless seeking Daley's endorsement in her run for Cook County board president; and Helen Shiller (46th), who was once the most reliable "No" vote on Daley's budgets but has long since gone over to the dark side.


  1. WOW, does this indicate that Helen is a 'super nova', which wikipedia describes as: " the expanding shock waves from supernova explosions can trigger the formation of new stars"

    I don't think I could have described it much better.

    I'm all for 'new stars'....especially if they are in touch with what a community seriously needs.
    There were huge 'shock waves' this summer at Sheridan and Leland that were met with a 'dull thud' of a response from the 46th Ward office.
