The Mincing Rascals 04/06/17: Mayor Emanuel’s new graduation rule, Devin Nunes’s public humiliation and protecting Syria

Today’s rascals are WGN Radio’s John Williams and Steve Bertrand, and Chicago Tribune’s Eric Zorn and Kristen McQueary. They debate the meaning of Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s effort to enforce a rule that Chicago Public Schools students must be accepted into some sort of higher education to graduate. They then move on to mince about House Intelligence Committee Chair Devin Nunes’s self-removal from the Russia-US investigation. And they wonder what can be done next to prevent attacks like that in Idlib Tuesday.

Steve recommends HBO series “Girls.”

Eric recommends current number one U.S. podcast, “S-Town.”

John recommends Fail Better: Why Baseball Matters by Mark Kingwell.

And Kristen recommends that you go on a distillery tour at Quincy Street Distillery, and ring in summer with a whisky grapefruit!
