Late to the party

Rich Miller, for Capitol Fax, writes about Sunday's Tribune article on how Mayor Daley holds city services hostage until the weeks before contested elections:

Miller writes that the Tribune is very late in coming up with this information, and goes into detail about my book, which was the first publication to go into depth about the subject. His lack of appreciation for my writing skills aside, it is about time the Tribune took notice of this.

Mr. Zelchenko you seem sincere.
You should refrain from demonizing the people who will continue to work for the 43rd
AFTER the election -community groups.
In an age of apathy and cynicism it is foolish and self- indulgent to try to embarass volunteers, it discourages others from getting involved.
We need younger people to take up the baton. You change a neighborhood group by joining it.
Community groups are full of quirky people with lots of different ideas-just like neighborhoods.
We are not paid, do good work
and deserve better than childish name-calling.
You appear to be a thoughtful person.
I hope you stick to issues and are not
suckered into making honest neighbors your
enemy. Volunteer groups must work with whomever is Alderman...some of us have been through four.
Please cut the cheap shots.
Discuss issues not personalities.

Cook County system. You have done a great service
and I hope you keep up the good work. Thank you.
