Weekend Reading: Duh Mare

roykobossSlavering with anticipation over the upcoming second session of The American Mayor, the political maven’s clever four part series on what we call real mayors, we took Boss home over the weekend.  What a great book.  Anyone who was anywhere in Richard J. Daley’s mid-century SMSA knows that Mike Royko, holding himself in admirable restraint, rendered the definitive and utterly accurate portrait of Duh Mare.

What a difference it would have made if Cincinnati had had someone like Royko in the last century.  It’s too late for this century.  There’s no newspaper.

Counting the minutes until noon 8/21.
