King Richard I feted and backed the downtown interests with one hand and threw the working-class neighborhoods to the wolves with the other. The collapse of the south and west sides into ghettos took place on his watch. His son, known to some of us as “Dick II”, continued the same process and left the city broke.

Da Boss was better than many other big-city mayors of his time, but that’s about all I can say about him.

The one example this guy used, ripping up a private airport without due process, undermines the argument that Daley wasn’t corrupt.

They’re right. The ears thing doesn’t sound much like any of the Daleys.

Now, Rahm Emanuel, on the other hand...

If you want a feel for Richard J Daley,and his under the horizon power, Royko’s “Boss” is a good read.
