Politicians often talk over each other, but this week it seemed to be in overdrive. CPS CEO Forrest Claypool and Gov. Bruce Rauner couldn’t agree on basic facts regarding Chicago Public Schools. Cook County commissioners spent over an hour arguing over two very similar resolutions asking for federal help from President Trump, then another hour talking about the finer points of FOIA. Plus, Mayor Rahm Emanuel pledged to get that longshot express train from O’Hare to the Loop–which had some budget watchers doing a double take.
