The [Tuesday] Papers

By Steve Rhodes / Posted on May 21, 2019

There's never an egg-timer around when you need one.

*

Not just buying it, but hiring it.

The description used to say the media was "buying it," hence the comment.

That sweater should go in a Chicago Politics Hall of Fame, no?

Some might say, well, doesn't this show a "mixed" record? No. First, everybody has a mixed record by any definition, but this piece has a thruline (and not a lazy he-said, she-said): While Rahm has done some things that have protected immigrants, he has not been the leader he portrays himself as, but a follower - and one who seems to have acted in various ways on the issue throughout his career as determined by his reading of the political winds, not any particular humanitarian conviction. That's probably true of Rahm on every front. A political opportunist who has helped people along the way only by accident, i.e., when it's been good for him to do so. (Some might call a person like that a supremely cynical fuck.)

Terms Of Service Gone Awry
Black women get flagged for posting hate speech when they share experiences of racism. Sex educators' content is removed because it was deemed too risqué. And soon, you may not even have to agree to the terms to have agreed to the terms. They agree for you! Self-agreeing terms!
