Mincing Rascals: “Isn’t it startling that people are still this corrupt?”
John Williams and Steve Bertrand from WGN Radio and Eric Zorn and Kristen McQueary from the Chicago Tribune discuss how great for business it is when the Cubs win. Corruption is another topic as former Chicago Public Schools CEO Barbara Byrd-Bennett pleads guilty to a kickback scheme. They talk about the GOP and the difficulty they are having finding a Speaker of the House. John stands by his prediction that Marco Rubio will come through in the Presidential nominee race. In the past few weeks, John had traveled to Greece, Eric to China and Steve to Scotland and they share observations from abroad. As always, they conclude with the favorite thing they read or saw this week.
