Chicago Is Losing the War on Arithmetic

    Simply put (and yes arithmetic is inviolable but…) as politics is the realm productive of public policy, the fiscal troubles of both Illinois and Chicago trace back to politics (not blue/red). In both state and city, you fine largely captured officeholders chosen by an electorate on the basis of suspect criterion to fiscal detriment of current and future residents.

    Not to be picky, but there’s no such thing a a good drubbing. Drubbings range from the merely bad through serious to the truly awful one that Chicago just experienced.

    Sooner or later, MATH wins. You can only defer reality for so long.
