It’s our year-end program, and we enjoy a relaxed conversation with Chicago Reader columnist and author Ben Joravsky. We talk about the state of education in Chicago and the legacy of Mayor Daley. Tax Increment Financing, the CHA and President Obama’s Lame Duck legislative juggernaut are also up for discussion.

And if that’s not enough, Chicago Newsroom scores a major scoop – an exclusive, if wholly unwanted, interview with the charismatic Alderman of the 53rd Ward, Ed Bus. Ald. Bus is running for Mayor, or so he claims. And why is his campaign gaining in popularity?  Well, he’s always voted for everything Mayor Daley has wanted, and he carries a couple of bags of Sakrete around in the trunk of his Cutlass in case he sees a pothole in his idyllic ward.

Is Ed Bus for real? You decide.
