Chicago, that windy city on a smelly plain, governed by the ‘D’ party uninterrupted since 1927, has pulled one of it’s rare sleight of hand moves on the “beloved” first black lesbian mayor, though perhaps not the last in politics.

Lightfoot came in third place, with just 17.1% of the vote — former Chicago Public Schools CEO Paul Vallas came in first with 33.95% and Cook County Commissioner Brandon Johnson came in second with 20.32%.

Now comes the battle royale between two solid Democrat apparatchiks. One is an avowed communist and the other a well entrenched machine politician (you don’t get to run the biggest failing school system in the nation without being one). The only aspect of passing interest in this is now whether melanin levels play a role within the “D” ecosphere..

Why do we care you ask? Well. 40 years ago this writer would travel from “Hicksville” to downtown and burbs for a good weekend of entertainment, food and occasional shopping, things no longer safe to do unless you are into being the recipient of robbery, carjacking, assaults on your person or random bullets traversing space you occupy, not to mention mob action on those shopping areas.

This is kind of an epitaph for the third largest city in the nation, an island of blue insanity in the Midwest. Of course they also elected a corruptocrat as Governor of IL on the last round, so there.

Oh! Chicago, rest in ashes, you are missed but not with much regret.
