Well, Well, Well.
We didn't think we'd ever be able to say this, but "Thank you, Ald. Shiller." We wish you'd have done this years ago. We wish you'd come out firmly against crime and made that a priority for your ward. We wish the gangbangers had never gotten the strong foothold in Uptown that we're living with now, and we wish the four people who were murdered on our streets this year were alive to appreciate the new cameras. But we're happy to have them. Thank you.
In the meantime, a reader tells us that Michael Carroll held a holiday party in his office across the street from the CAPS meeting. "I don't know who's running the campaign for this guy, but scheduling your holiday party/fundraiser up against the 2312 CAPS beat meeting that is taking place across the street at 7pm seems to be a foolish idea."
