"Joan, Can you tell us what that's about? Well, first of all, what were they thinking, Giving him that job? He is named by name in one of the legal actions taken by former cheerleaders at Northwestern who allege that they were told to appear at events where big donors were gonna be and essentially They felt that they were there to be to be cute. You know, cute, little sexually enticing young things, and they said that they were regularly inappropriate. Things were said to them. They were groped when they complain to people like the person who was just elevated. Their concerns were dismissed, made light of They were told to forget it, that kind of thing, and he is one of the people named by name in one of these legal proceedings, And yet Northwestern says, Hey, this guy he's going to be a fine athletic director. What did they think was going to happen? I mean, there was a letter signed by some female professors as well as ah, hue and cry from students that he you know what that we think Northwestern can do better now, obviously. He has denied everything and he is fighting everything in court. But you know, just when you're in a position of leadership, it's Appearance of impropriety is almost as bad as actual impropriety. It was, I think, ah, bad move on the board's choice, and you know, at least kudos to him for seeing that he was doing more damage than good and walking away from the job. And there was another sports controversy this week. This one involved the Blackhawks Joan what's going on there? Well, a player from the Stanley Cup team who has yet to be named Eyes accusing a man who was temporarily a coach is no longer a coach for the Blackhawks of sexual improprieties, and this unnamed player also says there was another player. That this coach was inappropriate with What I think is really interesting about this is the reaction from the team. They you know most institutions when they're hit with something like this, you know, they want to say all the right things, you know, were horrified by this. We will investigate. We're going to get to the bottom of this. We don't You know, we don't want anybody in this situation working for us. Whereas you know, Greg, correct me if I'm wrong, But what I mostly hearing from the Blackhawks is it didn't happen. It never happened. It was no big deal. Go away. Nothing to see here. Yeah. Yeah. Uh, whatever, probably having using their common sense of Northwestern season has lifted the Blackhawks. For whatever reason, Um, you know, its history is is clear on anything. It's that you can't stick your head in the in the sand and being ostrich that in this kind of stuff to confront it. He has to deal with somebody and let the chips fall where they are, and, uh That's well, nothing happened, though. Let's get back to the specter. The ice is probably gonna work. We have some good sports news, though. Cubs and White Sox announced they'll soon increase to 60% capacity briefly, Greg tell us What this summer's gonna look like for baseball fans. It is the White Sox keep winning. It's gonna look really good. They're doing a little better than comes. But I'm a cup fancy. Come on, guys says Pull, pull. Pull up Just a little bit. Yeah, um, you know, uh, we're now getting to the point where except on really weekends Busy weekends where we're back to the flight of the ball park will be about his film was it normally would be in the capacity of limits actually, a little higher than you talked about because people Been vaccinated on could prove it get their own little section. They don't count toward the capacity limits that we really might be talking more like 70 or 84% of the ballpark. Is that 43,000 and regularly on on a Sunday afternoon? No, but it might be the 30 years, 35, which is which is pretty good. Um, uh, it's you know, we're always we all have our own little ways of measuring Return to normalcy and how things like to be doesn't offer a lawful lot of people. Baseball is that the ability to just go out to the game and sit there with your friends not have to worry about disease and massive whatever is really reassuring at the end of creature comfort level in my five months here, if it's one thing I know so far. This is a baseball town that's for sure. Now. Sad news. Your local journalists lost an esteemed colleague this week Decay. Long time political reporter for NBC, five passed away. Let's take a Listen. I covered his time when he was in the house, and when he went to the U. S house, and when he became governor, I covered the whole campaign. I say it was a threat to anyone who might want to report a bad cop. City workers have been maligned over the years and you know, in some cases, lot of cases they deserved him. Joan, You worked with him for many years. Yes, I did. I worked with him at Channel five. And he was our union steward and Ah, And then I worked again with him at W. Cpt, You know, shortly after he retired, he went back to work. As a Zarina, eo host, and he was, you know, Sasha every once in a while, it doesn't matter. You know, people know you because you're on the radio. People know people because they're on television. But even with that kind of celebrity Has. Sometimes somebody is just larger than life, and they just break through to a whole different level. And that was that was decay with his with his big, booming voice and is no hold bars. No holds barred approach. He just was somebody That really made an impression on everybody. Greg has AH, fellow reporter covering local politics. You knew Dick a swell What are some of your memories of him? Oh, it took was a journalist reveals of the old school. I mean that the good sense he was pulling the thymus shot. Nobody was going to stop. If you want to find out something if you want to say something, he said it and that's not always good. But it's good more often than not, because the danger in this business is is to be too timid. I think Um, uh, He did it to a fall. I think one of my personal memories is trying to get in a question between between decks and the president, said Dick and Andy Shaw from Channel seven. That's kind of you know the issues that we stopped. You have to wait a half an hour. It was done. But they usually ask the right kind of stuff. But they used the, uh the heart was in the text. Heart was in the right spot. He was he was trying to find Stuff, and I wasn't going to be intimidated by the political clash. I just I just wish he'd need his professional career extent a little longer to the Donald Trump era. I think that the gets, um interesting interaction, so rest in peace decay. That is it for our weekly news. Recap. I want to thank Joan Esposito afternoon host that w C p t A m a 20. And Greg Hines of Crain's Chicago business. Have a great weekend up. Next, We revisit our conversation with author David Murray on how to overcome polarization,.

"White Sox radio network tonight Some big news could be occurring today, right? Correct. I've been told by my city hall sources that The announcement should come today that they will allow fans in the ballpark on a limited basis. It would be somewhere between 20 and 30% will be allowed in And their Cubs and socks are hopeful that will be on opening day, but that there will be fans in the ballpark this spring. So that changes you saw the Cubs find money for area and for Jack Peterson. That's why, because they knew They were gonna have projections where they were bringing money. So what else did Mike Flannery tell you? It wasn't my client was my planner. He was not wasn't Andy Shaw wasn't my plan wasn't Joel Weisman. It wasn't Joel wise, but I got it. I got some information for. You know, Joe, I don't need the information. Thank you. Thank you. Chuck are fine is Live in the lap of luxury. He and his wife, a dog are in Arizona, and they are hanging out as a family. And Chuck is working extremely hard to bring us great White Sox content and he joins us now are Chuck Lucas Giolito. Did he look better this weekend? Then even you remember because he's trying to take the next step because everyone said last year he was the worst pitcher in baseball coming in. He ended it by being In the discussion for Cy Young. How does he look now? I mean, he looks great. It is spring training, but he was three innings, three hitless innings. You're not going to expect much more than that from a spring training out, and so he looks. Ready to go. He's only giving up. One hit in spring. It was a home run. But anything was working on his slider. Kristen extra slider. That was his first start because it the home run, but yesterday I mean, he Dominated a okay lineup. There was Charlie Blackmon and cover story, but there's no no. One Erin Otto. But as if you're watching him pitch here in spring, that's what you want to see Lance Lynn Pitched his first start earlier, like a few days ago against the Giants, he looked amazing against mostly lefty. Lineup. They couldn't touch him. You like four strikeouts and two innings, So starting pitching wise things are looking good for the White Sox. So far, best starting staff did you seen for the White Sox since Old five. Yeah. What shocks will know that the world Championship Chuck, they're moving each other on the field. Uh, well, see, they have potential. They have the potential to be the best in 0506. But I will, say, land, Flynn. His attitude he would fit right in with the old side White Sox because if he was on that team, I guarantee they get to the A. L. C s. He's so in a complete game, just like all the other guys like insurers, Garland Early on forgetting somebody and Garcia Garcia? No. Yeah. So I mean, if he wants When Flynn wants the ball, he wanted to stay in a spring training game. He had pitched two weddings. It was basically what the plan was, and he wanted to pitch one more inning. I mean, that's the kind of guy he is. Old school once the ball from start to finish, and I think he's gonna be a big year for the Sox. So I keep hearing all about. We've discussed a bunch of times the pitching coach Ethan Katz. Hey, he's never been a major league pitching coach, but he's being treated like Oh, my God. The Messiah landed in Glendale, and he's gonna fix everything that's ever been wrong with any guy who's ever thrown one pitch in a major league game. We need to just pump the brakes and let this play out rather than setting this guy up for failure because nobody could live up to the unbelievable heights being predicted for him as a pitching coach, right? Eating cats can fix everything he can fix. Planet actually want them. Really? I've been here what you're saying so he was the assistant pitching coach with the Giants. And the reason why people talk so highly of him is because he does have this track record. Yeah, he's never been a pitching coach, the pitching coach on a major league team, But you go back to his high school days so that his his high school coaching days he was coaching Jack Security and Lucas Giolito. And he, you know, fixed yet played a big role in six. Angelito goes to San Francisco had AH, Big Kevin Gausman had a big season with the Giants last season. I think he had a lot to do with that. And with This team like he's a great communicator. He's saying things to a lot of guys. That are make that's making sense with them, and we're seeing the results so far from Ronaldo Lopez. We've seen a small adjustment with cease We've seen the lower body adjustment with Carlos for Don And Yeah, let's see how this plays out. You're right. There's a lot of Leaf out there that anything cat is going to fix all the problems for everybody and everything. And that's that's a bar is probably a little too high. But I think the point is, is that another thing gets down Cooper, But I think Ethan is going to bring a whole lot of a new energy, a new knowledge and new part of a new book. Level of wisdom to pitching that this White Sox organization probably needed and so far the grades are very high on him, and we'll see how it plays out. What are you hearing about? Kopeck right now, Chuck. I see after a couple years away, and now being back with the White Sox, What are you hearing about him and his stability. So Everyone stays. You know, The plan is for him to start in the bowl. 10. We haven't seen too much of him. I've watched him throw some live batting practice. And you know he's then he's rusty. I mean, he's still has the arm, of course, but you know, he's got to work on his command. You know, I saw him. It was a little erratic. I saw live batting practice. There was some really good like Adam Angle steps up their strike one. Strike two. Strike three. Take a seat. Adam Angle had no shot. But then he's facing Jonathan Lucroy and almost look away in the face. Gavin Sheets the other day hit two home runs off of Kopeck in in live batting practice. So you know we haven't seen him in a in a in a game yet, But you know, I think Considering the time away. I don't think fans should expect him to come up and all of a sudden, you know, think that he's going to be Liam Hendriks out there and dominates on the beginning. He's got the stuff to do it. But I think they're working with something's toe haven't be more consistent because he just hasn't pitched is barely pitched in last couple of years, So I'm assuming he's going to be in a spring training game sometime in the next week. And then we'll start to see more of him and stands concerted worldwide as opposed to just being in the backfield, Stone live band practice. Chuck Andrew von has never played above a There was no minor league season last year, but Tony LaRussa has said Boy, that guy looks really good. Like he could be the D H opening day. Do you think In the end he makes the team Yeah, I do. It just feels that way on. You know, he used this rails. Hitter and when I mean by that he was real situation. Where in any of this was not a pandemic. And wrong would have started last season and double or even triple A And then this year, he would be raring to go. There'll be no questions asked about him being the designated hitter, but because Last season, and he was playing to the alternate side. You're thinking this guy? What kind of how can you make this jump? I spoke to him here It's been springing. He learned a lot but playing in the alternate site because he was facing double a triple A. Even some hit some pictures who have been in the majors at that site, so he was seen Triple and double They stop. It's not the same as being in the mile leagues. I get it, but you know, he that really helped him and it also 11 like have conversations with a lot of things. Triple A double eight pictures like a what we're trying to do with me. So there they believe in him and you know, I had wanted them to sign. Michael Bradley Nelson Cruz. Be that d H but At the same time. The stocks are a little in between here where We're ready to win. But they've also got guys like kopeck like cease, like on who Just need a shot. They need a shot. And if they would have signed Michael Brantly, what does that mean for von Bonds and Triple A and maybe slowing his development when he is in the box? He just looks the part. He looks like he's ready now..

"Your alderman. Which one will you choose? Come on, that that wins in a landslide. So so this is something that's doable, and it's harder at the state level because We don't see the same commitment to redistricting reform from either Don Harmon, the Senate president, or Chris Welch, at this point But if we can open up the state process a bit. Instead of having a map drawn in the back room by Madigan and voted on in the middle of the night by the Legislature, maybe we can have some public hearings. Two or three or four. Maybe they'll consider an alternate map presented by a group like ours. So again, this is a fight. We have to keep waging, and people have to. You know, people they could watch us from afar or they can contribute, But the key is The fight is going to continue, and I'm gonna keep doing it as long as I can. Yes, Speaking of speaker? Well, just a few minutes left here, Andy, but he has start again floated this graduated income tax thing. And he's trying to tie it to pensions you know to be. Hey, we're just going to use it for pensions. I think he's sort of trying to bank on this idea that he's not mad again and that people didn't trust Springfield under mad again. I don't know how much more people trusted now, but that he is saying this is the way forward. Do you agree with that? Putting out the graduated income tax for the pension reform? No, I don't know if we talked about it on your show, But I wrote an op ed some months ago, basically saying that even though I am four fair, fair taxation, and I believe in a graduating context, conceptually, the wealthier you are, the more you should pay. Not now in Illinois, because I don't trust what they're going to do with those additional dollars. And it's not fair to gouge people just because they're wealthy, if if the money's gonna be wasted now. The idea of putting money into pensions is a good one. But I don't know that it's fair to say OK, it's up to the wealthy people in Illinois to fix the pension system that was broken by the politicians. I think that's gonna have the same pushback. At the graduated income tax push, push back, you know, had t defeat that in November. I just think yes, you know, in a perfect world, the more you have, the more money you make the more taxes you should pay, But this is Illinois. It's a broken state, and I don't think it's fair to just increase taxes on people because they have money. Then say, OK, we screwed it up. You're going to fix it that that's just not fair to me. I think I think ah lot of things have to happen in Illinois before I would support higher taxes for anything. Some of the reforms I mentioned after the past talking about pensions. We need to get rid of the amendment in the Constitution that a lot that does not allow any changes and pension benefits. I'm not saying that we should be, you know, taking things away from people in a cavalier, unfair way, But we need to be able to revisit the pension system and decide what is fair. And what isn't And you need you need some tweaks and that system to start driving down the unfunded liability. It can't just be fixed with higher taxes. It has to be fixed with a healthier pension system. So Let's see an amendment to open up the pension process, and then we can talk about more revenue. It's the one thing that comes up when people say, Hey, it's part of the Constitution. They can't do anything to change this. This is the way it is for pensions. Let's move forward, and that's where it comes to all these taxation solutions. It's It's interesting, you know, Otherwise. That's Illinois. The pensions. Look, we tried to reach we tried. We tried We? As reform groups try to pass redistricting reform. The Supreme Court, led by Democrats threw that out. There was a pension reform bill passed. Some years ago, Supreme Court threw that one out, led by Democrats, So these things have been tried. I'll tell you the most interesting election and 2022 may not be for governor or attorney general or legislative seats it maybe for an open Supreme Court seat. You know James Kilbride. He wasn't retained. He lost his attention fight in November, And now if the Republicans can win that seat they take over the majority in the General Assembly. And even though I'm nonpartisan, not I don't want Republicans in just because the Republicans but They would be in support off pension reform and term limits and income tax reform. There's a lot of reforms that they would approve off that the Democrats didn't and so that will be an interesting one to watch to see how that plays. A lot of money will be spent to either protect the seats for Democrats or turned over Republicans, and that could be one of the most important things that happens in 2022, regardless of who the governor is. Mm. Always interested to get your thoughts on this stuff, Andy. If people want to get more involved with change, Illinois, which is the group that you're now a board member with what did they do? Where do they go? What? Two things you can either go to the website. It's change. He'll C h a, E and G I l got organ. Let me just say this. All The things I proposed, are Andy Shaw's reforms. Change supports some of them, not all of them. I wrote the op ed as Andy Shaw, not just the change board member. Most of what I support is part of change. So change ill dot org's If you want to help us with it, you can. It shows you how to donate. And if you want to talk to me about this sudden, an email Andy Shaw, Chicago Achy male. That's pretty easy. And Shaw, Chicago, all one word. Lower case. A Gmail. You want to talk about any of these things. I'm happy to dialogue with you by email. Because you have the radio show when I don't Well, Andy, you're welcome to come on. I love having you on. Just just come on any time. Okay, Andy, I gotta let you go, though, Because because I'm not gonna have a radio show if I don't hit the news on time, so Thank you. Bye. Mandy shot there. It's top of the hour time.

"Of politics for years now Change Illinois board member. He wrote this piece in the Tribune. It reads in part. Raven is no longer perched on his shoulder, the albatross wrapped around his neck, the sort of damage please dangling over his head. Whatever your metaphor, meaning is clear. Illinois's Newhouse Speaker Emanuel Chris Welch, is emerging from the towering shadow cast by the all powerful Predecessor and mentor, Mike Madigan, who exited Springfield. If he wants to make history of his own in the sunlight in several fewer decades, he can embrace a serious of good government reforms Illinois desperately needs and Madigan stubbornly. Resisted. It's a great read and I want to ask any shock as he joins us Now. I was reading this. I'm speaking to you, a stoop Political observer that you are. Andy shot really actually believed that Springfield is ready for reform and well, actually. Accomplish any of better is this kind of wishful thinking. Well, maybe it's a little bit of both. Anna. You know, Chris Welch was was a protege of Mike Mad again, and Vatican actually asked him if he wanted to be speaker. So the skeptics and the cynics who read my column emailed me to say nothing's going to change. Welch is just an African American version of Madigan. That may be the case but listening to Welsh in the first few weeks. And understanding the opportunity he has. I have to believe he will embrace some reforms. Now will he go AST? Far as we'd like him to go? Probably not. But if he wants to actually make a record for himself and be remembered as Maura than Mike Madigan's protege, this is his opportunity. There's a whole world of reform that Illinois deeds. And if he only embraces several of them and actually leads the charge for some changes that make Illinois a better state. He will be a success. Remember, we're pariah state right now. Hannah were one of the worst states in the country in terms of corruption and finances. People are leaving in droves and Government has to get better, or this is going to become a a Somalia of U. S states and this is his chance. Will he step up? I told him to Willie, Listen, That's his call. I like what you did in the article, too, because you don't get sued even the weeds so that people fall asleep as you pointed out, but that you know there's only a certain tolerance for hearing exactly how these plans get carried up. But you do lay out the bullet points and some of the things you feel need to be done, and they're great. And Jerry Mandiri and engender Jerry Mannering. One of them adopt real term limits for legislative leaders. Eliminate conflicts of interest and you go on and on to highlight a little bit of this for us, Andy. Tell us what white how you came up with this list. Well, I think it's fairly. It's fairly predictable. It's been the boilerplate reform issues for a long time when somebody like Mike Madigan could be house speaker for 30 years and can basically block 30 years of reforms than the argument is, how can somebody lied for so long? That's not healthy, so we need term limits for legislative leaders. Chris Welch supports that, he says. But I think we need to go further. And we need term limits for regular elected officials. I think you can stay somewhere too long. Look, if if a really good elected official has to leave because of term limits, Maybe that's unfortunate. But you know what? That person could come back One term later. In other words, you have to take a break, but you could come back. We need new people in the political world because the way it works. Now, these become lifetime Cinna cures for people who are mostly concerned about being reelected, and as a result, they're disinclined to take important steps so term limits is important. It starts with redistricting. Creating Fair district's that don't protect incumbents so people will run for office and we can get a new breed of people at least. Challenge the incumbents. Conflicts of interest. Look, Mike Madigan was handling our tax dollars. At the same time, his law firm was getting tax breaks for big businesses on their property, and we were paying the difference, so that to me is a blatant conflict. We hire him to say to protect our tax dollars not to charge us more because he's making money off clients. That's an obvious one. There are other ones. You know the statements of economic interests that people file in Springfield. You know what Madigan Statement of economic Interest said. It said he had an outside job, but he made more than $5000 a year. That's all no idea what he did no idea who his clients were, how much money he made from them. That's ridiculous. When we put you in office and give you a chance to manage our billions of tax dollars, we need to know who you are in terms of your personal finances. Those are just a few of the things we could go on to election reform. He's closed primaries that result in polarized candidates. We need to open up the primaries making maybe go to a form of what they call ranked choice voting where you basically you know, it's not just one person for party, but there's there's a way that you calculate votes your 2nd and 3rd choices. I'm not going to get into the complications break choice voting. The simple fact is, it's a way to encourage and elect more bothering candidate. Who may work across the aisle. The current system system produces Left wing Democrats and right wing Republicans who barely talk to each other. So that's just part of a very long list. I didn't even get into the financial piece, which is pension reform and tax reform. I could've written 10,000 words on this, but let's see if he will take take some of these seriously and think about what's in the best interest of Illinois. If he could do some of these things, it will restore some of the faith in government and make Illinois more attractive for taxpayers of businesses. And that's what we need, because, as I said earlier, people are fleeing the state in droves, and that's unhealthy. It is unhealthy. It's unsustainable. So you gotta reverse that. How do you do it? We can talk a little more about that with Andy Shaw. I also want to dig into one of the points here. The conflicts of interest piece of it all. Because if you look at the comment, bribery scandal and the federal investigation in the indictment that have already been handed down in the ones that are certain to come, it shows exactly how Springfield works. And how do you eliminate the pieces of that so that that doesn't happen again after you send people off to prison and you slap people on the wrist and people pay fines and tell on each other, and they get who they want to get in. The feds do that? What happens next? How do you change the system? Hey, pie into the thought, though, Andy, I want to circle back with you on that. We gotta check the traffic..

"We're going to try to put together a citizen's commission that will basically have hearings, draw its own map and try to get a non Jerry Mander City Ward map approved and here's the Here's the big play in Chicago, Anna We have 77 neighborhoods way have 77 neighborhoods and 50 wars. Which means that every every war not to have like 1.5 neighborhoods in it, you know that back of the yards has five different alderman representing it Angle. What has five different alderman That is intentional, because if your neighborhood is split up five ways There's no way you could have a United neighborhood effort to take to an older man. You've got five different alderman. The goal is to create wards that match neighborhoods. Perhaps they match police districts and school district's so that groups of people who live in a neighborhood can basically have much simpler access to the important people in their lives. The police officers to school the folks and the in the war and the alderman. If we do that, What we the people in the neighborhoods will get a lot more power. We'll have better campaigns for alderman. Better people running and, you know, I think it will be much healthier for democracy. So that's gonna be a big push. We expect me or like foot to support this. She's not on board yet. She's been busy with other things, but she is she's in favor of eliminating Jerry Mannering. We expect her to help, but we will need about 10 or more alderman to to join us if we're gonna have a competitive map that goes up against their Jerry Mander, Jerry Mander map. It's awfully wonky, but it's very important for democracy. It totally is, which is why I wanted to talk about it. We're out of time. But I hope you'll come back because I want to talk to you about censorship, and I know that's another issue you've you've mentioned on the show. You saw it with the some of the political players. You start with the president you saw with parlor political platform or platform that sort of represented the far right conservative views. But now you're seeing even the traders with the Robin Hood accounts getting suspended or their search results getting, you know, kind of squished. It's just troubling issue. Let's talk about it. I'm always available to you one advantage of being semi retired. I have a lot of free time. So anytime you need me, you were Peter. Call me your producer, and I'll join you anytime. Thank you, Andy. Good to hear from you. Okay. Second, Maxine. Thanks much. Andy Shaw there, we're going to get to the news here at the top of the hour, then the secretary.

"It is everybody's caught up. I'm trying to get 100%. Right. And everybody wants 100%. You know, protection. What We also know is that you know, if you had coverted initially was, you don't even need to get the vaccine for 90 days because you likely have built in some immunity. Um, all these different communications is not helpful. The single The single shot of You had. Kobe obviously boosts your immune system say, suggesting that what you've had covered once you already have some anybody, and so that single shot is going to get you over the threshold to protect you. The only issue with that is this. Anna is if you had cold it, But you were asymptomatic, right? Or if you had very mild symptoms. What is that, Anna body problem that you produced. Is it sufficient enough? With that you get a single shot that its protective so a single answer, I think doesn't apply to everybody. And that's where a lot of this confusion no lies. I think again, we need to have really direct. Single communications and very clear for everybody, and we're not there yet. And so I think we still have a little bit of work to do. I got a question from a listener here. My son lives in California. Some people have received their first dose of the vaccine. Now, three weeks later, there's no vaccine available from the same manufacturer. They now are seeking it from a different manufacturer. I thought that was a huge No, No, you don't If you take the first dose from one Manufacturer, the divisor. You've got to get the number two. Fizer. Isn't that right? That that is the CDC guidelines. What I would say to your listener is, you know, even Dr Fauci suggested that it doesn't have to be on day 21, you know, pushing it out even to 34 weeks, eyes likely, you know, not an issue, so hopefully they get access to the second same manufacturer in the next 2 to 5 weeks, um, to be able Tonto get their vaccines. It doesn't have to be 21 days for five year doesn't have to be 28 days for Madonna. But within six weeks, eight weeks, you should be fine. Okay? And then the second shot. Also some news about that that it could be a rude and reawakening for immune cells and that, but when you get the side effects, it's just a sign that the protection is kicking in as it should. Was that right doctor and I had the second shot at a 11 A.m. on a Friday Friday night at about 10 P.m.. I have body aches, chills. Really sure mussels Saturday was not a pleasant day relief fatigue and then by Sunday, I was completely fine. So I went through it. It is what you want. It's almost understanding that your immune system is building up of protection on DSA. That is something that is expected. Then we have to be honest and transparent with with with patients we have to. We have to Make sure that they understand what is ahead of them. You know whether to take Tylenol or not. There's some suggestions that not take town also that you don't suppress that response. But again, consistent messaging is is really, really important and transparency. Yeah, I know You're not here to talk about this. We have a big role with the marathon for years and years and years and we just saw the Southside Irish parade canceled. That's in the spring marathons. Not till October, are we are. We are optimistic about events. Bigger events later in the summer and early fall that some of those can return this year. Doc, What do you think? I think in line with, you know, the CBC and some of the, you know information you're hearing for you from Dr Fauci. We're working, You know, really actively with CD pH in our city and all of our partners across the state, you know, toe hopefully a combination of vaccinations and testing to be able to get back to some large scale of them. So we're extremely optimistic and a and we're really working hard to make sure that we can get those events in the fall and do it safely. I hope so. I hope I hope you can and you'll figure it out. If anyone can. Thank you, Dr George. Always good here and from you. I appreciate it. Appreciate the time you two Annabi shape all right door, Dr George campus there. He's emergency medicine.

"The Jan and losses here. Hey, we want to hear from you. How are you voting or how did you vote if you early voted? On the progressive tax, the one that says, Hey, no more to the flat tax the 4.95% that everyone currently pays in the state of Illinois. They want to move that to an income based one where if you're making over 250,000 bucks per household that you're going to be paying more That's on the ballot that would change the Constitution. It's a big deal. How are you voting? I found it interesting. Andy Shaw, former longtime political reporter at ABC seven, and he's now on the board at Change, Illinois. Rhoda Chicago Tribune. Editorial here. You expressed his views. And he said What I tell my friends who asked my advice on the fair tax vote in Andy, We're your friends. We We want to hear what you have to say. How you doing? I'm doing very well and and thanks for having me on I want to make one thing very clear. My opinion on the flat tax is not the opinion of change. Illinois. This is a good government Reform group. I chair one of their boards. But change takes no official position on the tax. This is Andy Shaw, speaking as someone who's watched government as a journalist and watchdog for 50 years, I was giving them and informed of viewpoint and what I said simply Wass, even though the state needs more money. And this tax could conceive will be bringing in more than $3 billion. I feel very, very strongly that government has to earn the trust of the voters before voters should give them the right to raise taxes, and I just lay out my view of why I don't think Illinois politicians have earned the right to raise the tax. Now this Russian the hard core ideological point of view. I respect all of the people who feel like the state needs the money and should have it regardless of what the politicians have done in the past, But I laid out a pretty good case for why I think they haven't earned the right to raise taxes now, and it's up to other piece up to people to make up their decisions. After that. I think I just laid out what I thought was a good case against it. Okay, part of what you lay out here, You make very good points they have they supported term limits that would bring new lawmakers and legislative leaders into state government. No. Have they supported redistricting Reformed and the Jerry Mandarin of state legislative districts that stifle competition protects incumbency? No, I know that is something that change Illinois is involved with. That is one constitutional amendment that doesn't seem to get on the ballot, does it, Andy? Well next. That was there was the other point. I was trying to make an ID that J. B. Pritzker and the Democratic leadership in Springfield have gone all in on this tax increase, You know, they should be able to walk and chew gum at the same gum at the same time. I understand that the pandemic the covered 19 response has has sucked up most of the oxygen for J B. Pritzker and legislative leaders, but not all of it. There are a lot of leaders in state government and there could have been efforts to do other things that we felt were important term limits was not one of our agenda items. Although 75% of Illinois residents support term limits, But we have thought long and hard for redistricting reform, and we could not get any traction for that. There are a lot of ethics measures that the Legislature should be passing, having to do with. Accountability and transparency and conflicts of interest and all sorts of abuses and inside deals. We know all about that from the comment indictments, and yet they haven't passed any of those ethics measures. We have more units of government in Illinois 2000 more than any other state. Those units of government suck up several billion dollars that wouldn't be spent if we were at the national average for units of government. So I just laid out all the ways in which politicians haven't taken efficiency, accountability and transparency seriously, and as a result, I don't think that they should be raising taxes. Here's the other point. And even though this tax measure Is designed to initially simply soaked the wealthy. It gives the politicians the rightto alter the income tax on any level income from now on. In other words, if they choose to, they can start taxing retirement income. They contact middle income or working class income. And when you need billions of dollars to balance your budget And pay the bills and pay down the pension liability. There's a real temptation to raise other taxes. Just something very. And I felt that no is the right vote. Hey, and he just said something very important. I want to get back to retirement income, but let's take Let's take a call here. Amy, Go ahead. You're on. W g N you have thoughts about The new tax. What's on video and actually, I was planning to go early vote this afternoon in about an hour and I am going to vote. No, um I think what Andy was thing I do that resonates with me is that I think that the lawmakers in Illinois have not been very trustworthy. I know that. They say that it's going to be only for 250,000 and above. But because you're changing the Constitution, you have almost no way to come back from that. Because what if in a couple of years they're like, Oh, well, you know, we're lowering it. I don't know it could happen. Or maybe it is going to stay the same. But I just don't talk to me. Yeah, that. I mean, I think that's a fair point. And that's the point. I think I would make an and he's making is that this seems like I wish there was some sort of trade off as you suggest India some ethical reforms in say, Hey, guys, take this, but we'll also give you that. Instead, it's sort of this all out, multi multi million dollar campaign to convince us That this is the right thing. Even the ballot languages written in a way that makes it seem as if there's no other reason why there's no reason why we wouldn't vote for you. Have you seen it? Yeah. Let me point out one other thing. I mean, it feels fair to tax high income people. And I made the point that I support the concept of a progressive tax. I do believe that if you make a lot of money, you should be paying more tax. But, you know, right now, even with the flat tax and I point this out in Facebook conversation I got into if you make $50,000 a year, your tax at 4.95% is $2750. If you make $5 million your tax at that rate is $275,000. If you make $50 million, you're going to pay 2,750,000. So the point is, it's not that the rich are getting away with limited taxation. They're just paying at the same rate as everybody else. But those individuals who make enormous sums of money, pay enormous sums of money in taxes, or they simply they just don't pay at a higher rate than we do, or they make so much money that there are taxable. In strategies that we've certainly seen implanted as well. Can you hang on a second Andy here because we wanna pause. We'll take more of your calls on this tax and then pick it up on the other side with Andy Shaw of Change Illinois. She's talking to us about something that has nothing. Do it change. Illinois is talking about this progressive tax. But we want to revisit this with Andy in just a moment cause he wrote this Chicago Tribune. Op ed piece that you should check out. Pretzels..

"On this 9 11 continuing to take your calls. 3125 989 100. I want to hear from you the listeners on your reflections on this day and where you were and your stories but first. Ah, there's some news today and I want to get Teo Andy Shaw. He's a former political reporter from ABC, seven, A former head of the watchdog organization B G, A He's semi retired now, but still very active in good government reform organizations and the welcome to the show. And since it's 9 11, what are your thoughts on this day? Well, I remember that day, Lauren. I was actually in my basement with my wife, who was ironing clothes that we have the TV on. This is before work, and we have, I think. Good Morning America. I'm on ABC guy. That's what we're watching and We see this tape of a plane crashing into a building and a building starting to collapse, and it's the World Trade Center. And then, of course, everyone's riveted to that for the next hours, so and then it's all hands on deck for the next month, I would say every single day. I'm involved in some story related to 9 11. We are tracking down alleged terrorists in Chicago connections to the people on the flights. Family members all over Chicago, trying to do the local angle on the story, which, of course, is playing out in such dramatic level nationally and eventually, of course, it all settles down when the facts become more more obvious, But I would say it was probably one of the most Dramatic days I've ever experienced. Can you imagine looking at your television set and watching iconic buildings collapsing and wondering what is going on and then watching it play out and Bush dealing with it in the country dealing with it. And here we are, What 19 years later, and it feels like yesterday when you bring it up. I mean, I was in the Fox 32 newsroom and Andy and I used to work together Channel seven. And I came off the anchor desk and walked right in the middle. The newsroom and the you know, TV's were up and saw it and I was startled. And then, of course, his newsrooms Dio. It was a quiet There was a shock. Nobody really believed it. And then we mobilize and then No, I had Tio reach my family first in New York while racing out to cover the Sears Tower. And you know, Andy, you've covered so many stories in your career. So, Abi, I cried that day I was It was a really hard day for me to even get through and keep a straight, you know, game face and try and keep the calm. In the middle of all that. That was my toughest day You had family in New York. I didn't And so to me. It was just a story. What's the local angle? I mean, I did so many things. Over the years I almost became immune to the human side of things because you got to go out and get the story. I'm I'm acknowledging that it's not a wonderful thing to admit, because you should be feeling these things. But in my case I was just right out with the rest of the gang at Channel seven, trying to figure out what the local parts of the story were. And it wasn't till much later that I began to actually feel the impact of 9 11 That's happened a lot of times over the years, I covered the story first, and feel it much later. So let's talk a little politics and the fact that folks are going to be going to the November ballot and having to deal with this new issue of making a decision about the flat tax versus the graduated income tax. And you just wrote an op ed on this. What is your take? Well, let me be. Let me make a jury clear that I do believe a progressive or graduated income tax that makes the wealthier people pay more is a good thing in principle. I think that the more you earn, the more your business earns, the more you should pay in taxes. That is a theoretical point of view. The problem is in a state like Illinois. We don't trust the politicians to spend the extra tax dollars well, and that's the real issue. One of the reasons that we are the largest exodus state in the country. People leaving Illinois is a distrust in government, the corruption, the waste inefficiency. And so when I said that out, that is That the graduated income tax might make sense, but only in a state where you can trust politicians to spend the money wisely. And we have this massive corruption investigation going on. That's implicated House Speaker Michael Madigan and others. And yet there's been no ethics legislation passed in Springfield. We have 7000 units of government taxing bodies more than any other state in the country by 40%. And we've done nothing to try to reduce the size of government. Why don't we have a redistricting reform initiative on the ballot and gerrymandering? Why don't we consider a term limits Amendment on the ballot? How about pension reform? So all these things that we need to clean up government and make it efficient and effective are lacking in Illinois, and it was terrible under previous administrations. It's not a lot better under the current one. My point in that op Ed was simple. Until government proves its ability to spend our money fairly wisely and efficiently. They don't deserve a tax increase. Even a progress. Progressive income tax make sense on paper, and it was simple as that. And I feel that very strongly. What concerns me is if you put the power in with the politicians and in a couple of years from now, I mean, then they have the ability to just keep raising taxes at their whim..

"To get into the specifics of the case here in a second, but first in general, how big of a win for transparency is this? It's a great win and Johnny's. The best way to think about is what a terrible loss it would have been for transparency if it came out the other way, because if it did, it would mean every public official in the state. Just make anything they want secret simply by using their Gmail account instead of their government issued account. So thankfully, the appellate court in Illinois put an end to that kind of nonsense that Ron was trying to do Laurie life. It was trying to continue after she took office, and we've seen You know all around the country at all levels and you know lots of different public officials trying to do this. I remember talking about this in this lawsuit was filed. I think Andy Shaw came on the air back in 2016 to describe what was going on. Give our listeners editorial on the case itself. You mentioned Rahm Emanuel. It started when he was our mayor. It also involved drinking water at the Chicago public schools just give us kind of a thumbnail sketch of how this began. Well, we all remember the tragedy in Flint, Michigan, with light in the drinking water, and when all that came out that sparked a lot of interest in seeing what was going on locally, So there had been ah lot of interest in Chicago public schools and whether they had been testing their drinking water turned out that they really hadn't and then when they started testing it that there were elevated levels of lead in a lot of those Drinking fountain, and so it BJ wanted to know was. What were mayor's office. People saying internally about this? We all know what the external messaging was. We wanted to see. What were they saying behind the scenes about this? How were they trying to craft the message and spin it in a way that might have been favorable to them or Take attention off the fact they hadn't been testing the drinking water, so we made a freedom of Information Act request. If your listeners aren't familiar, it's a wonderful cool. It allows all of us to get a better understanding of what our government is up to. And we asked her. Those emails in the city wouldn't give them to us, and we went to court turned out that we thought they were using private emails. The court ordered that they that they Do a search to see if there were any private emails. They at least ask those people in the city with the city lost. We won the city appealed and you call court firm? Can they appeal this decision? Well, they can try to take it to the Illinois Supreme Court. But the Supreme Court has discretion whether they're going to take the appeal or not. I mean, if they want to bring that fight, and they could bring that flight, I'm pretty confident that the Supreme Court of Illinois doesn't want to make us the first state in the nation addressing this issue to say that, yeah public officials can just evade open records laws using a private email account. Better Government Association wins a big one against Rahm Emanuel and our current mayor, We're talking a man topic. He's an attorney is the founder, He leads the Ah Lo V and Lovie Freedom of Information Act practice. Let me play Devil's Advocate here, Rahm Emanuel mentioned if we have to, at every freedom of information request if we have to stop, what we're doing and fulfill that requested essentially just jams up the gears of government is at a legitimate concern. No, it's not a legitimate concern. I mean, it isn't true. In practice, the government has been able to deal with request their mechanisms in place. If requests are too broad they can. They can be denied or force you to try to narrow their requests. So you know it. It's certainly possible for government to comply with the Freedom of Information Act. Our General Assembly said that it's essential that they do that because we all know what kind of government we get when they act in secret job and seldom works out for us. Matt When you finally took a look at Rahm Emmanuel's emails, office, private account and text messages off his personal phone, you find a lot of interesting items that really had nothing to do with the drinking water at the Chicago public schools, as I read today. Um ah. Lot of requests. Ah. From friends in business. Ah, lot of these requests had the air of a modern day king hearing, please. From the dukes and duchesses of the land. Do you concur? Yeah, absolutely. That that goes back to a case that we did for the better government association even more years back where the city agreed to settle and give us Rama manuals, private e mails and then they decided to just go ahead and fight This next case for reasons I don't understand, But yeah. What if there were no real bombshell? They're smoking guns that no. Bram knew about the laquan video and buried it or things like that. But it gave you this picture of how city government operates in What I do the way I thought it was sort of the electronic equivalent of duchesses and Duke parading in front of the king with their when they're required, some of which seem awfully patty to me. But you know that my place, please, sir, May I have some more No off with your head. My sister is a corporate counsel for a big county in a nearby state. And when she became the corporate counsel there, A lot of the county commissioners would always email her requests or what have you from their personal e mail accounts, and that was a really The moment kind of a demarcation line for where she decided to make an issue out of it right when she took the job, and she returned all the email requests, I mean, replied both on their Gmail but always looked them into the official county server. Just a matter of public record. You think she made the right decision? Yeah, Absolutely. She should be commended for that. And a lot of public officials are doing this right. You know, they figured out that you know the public doesn't want them to be acting in secret. And so Taking the necessary steps. Look, sometimes you know, for whatever reason, the communication ends up on another account, or if you're elected official, and maybe it starts in your campaign account the campaign business and then it turns into public business well. 42 year accounts for your government account, Copy someone in a way we can easily address that issue, But she caught a lot of heat from Smith County commissioners when she did that they want to have a private off off the grid. You know, sidebar conversation with her about something. Love. She got some heat. That just means he was doing a good job, man Topic. Thank you for your ah, your patients with us. Thanks for jumping in with short notice. We appreciate it and congratulations to everybody at the better government associate. Sounds like you want a good one for all of us. Take care. 5 16 now.

"Difficulty. You are acceptable officials are asking Chicago residents again to limit the use of water amid significant storms this week. This'll be an effect again tomorrow, the metropolitan water reclamation district of greater Chicago said more rain is expected a little bit more tonight, the tunnel and reservoir plan has one hundred nine miles of tunnels and three reservoirs to deal with all this water. But it is nearly a capacity. The mccook system is at full capacity with five point one billions of water already stored there. The mix of heavy rainfall in your continued USA water. Lauren means that there's a risk sewer systems can overflow back or river. No. And you remember Richard J Daley used to say at some point in the not too distant future. We hope to people will be able to come down during their noon hour and fish in the river and the river at that time was just so horribly polluted. I don't think the fish fishing there. Every now after decades of. Attention. The river now is relatively healthy in relatively healthy. But today was an overflow action day as was Wednesday. I assume that just because the rain we had today. Tomorrow will be too. So once again, the city is asking you to reduce the time you spend in the shower, turn off your faucets and flush less minimize your use of water before and during and after the storms. Do you remember down under the daily ministration when we had all those deaths due to the high levels of heat and they told us to turn off our air conditioning. That's because electrical issues, right? You remember that years ago because all of our, you know, whatever transponders were blowing up I was actually at a press conference with mayor Daley. And I asked him if he had called Maggie, and she was going to also shut off air conditioner in the middle of the day. And well that was the end of me in the mayor of really he didn't like that question. Andy Shaw was sort of kicking me. Like, why did you ask that? I thought it was a fair question. He probably thought it was, you know. Gotcha question put him on on the spot. Honestly, if we all have to stop taking showers too. All the political folks at city hall to us a good question. I would assume that it's best to lead. By example. Isn't it? Well, this is Chicago Deborah shore Commissioner of the metropolitan water reclamation district said in a tweet that she didn't fact skip showering both Wednesday and Thursday and urged others to delay, washing clothes, dishes, etc. While the system is at capacity so river can remain clean enough to fishing, and you see that coming up, and you're fishing, and then you look to the west and see the beautiful skyline. You can't get a feeling that we live in a beautiful city.

Anita hill opposite, Dave messes Macioce. Yeah. That's a salient example, I have another one that is a proprio given the context of our show. I once followed Reverend Jackson around for the day in Chicago in which you might recall, you spoke at various schools in the inner city, and you also at the time working on diversity in Silicon Valley as he's still do. And I was set to write about this for the Daily Beast in the way, I wrote it is I connected. Those two issues inequity and inequality in the school system inequity and inequality in Silicon Valley. And I referenced back to the work. You did in the nineteen seventies economic, fairness and integration and opportunity in Chicago. Going up against a white time to kinda me in Chicago. And I don't know I'm telling stories out of school here, but my editor at the Daily Beast. I under- right for them. That's why can tell the story said, let's tone this down. And just look at Silicon Valley. We don't want to take on the whole white capitalist system. Now. So the story never got written I refuse to do it. And I ended up writing for truth out, which NTT mentioned at the top of the program, but that mentality first of all that narrow thinking that cowardice because of the economic incentives for narrow thinking cowardice affects many more writers than just me and many more stories than just the necessary. Noble work that you were doing it, followers and Shates in ships, the entire coverage of the societal status quo and therefore limits people's perception because most people go ahead. The white publishes Agra's have unusual levels of government time Franklin spun the guy named the show used to be a channel five right, right? Andy shaw. And I've been several years on the top five of the most of my men America. So I say, you know, if this were Jayme burns some other white guy. This has really because he runs a do this. Do that suggested impress Reggie care this reality? He made a judgment about the marketplace. And the embassy when the campaigns of Ramsey of. Hello, don't don't don't don't tell me. We've had three centers in all kinds of fishes, but limited by the by the press protective ring. Absolutely. You know media is all about sponsorship. And sponsorship is based on consumers. Forty percent of Americans and African Americans are disproportionately in this category. Earn less than fifteen dollars an hour. So they can't buy our consume. You know, a whole lot of stuff. Some new percent of economic growth is based on consumers, but the income of workers middle class, you know, has been static or losing ground over the last thirty years or so so a lot of this is relate related to, you know, the state of our economy class of lever brothers on September fifteen two thousand in age, of course, although simply into our world and to a total of Gresham total depression. And a lot of African American businesses.

David, you know, that seemed to meals also that when when from ran the first he got some free media. He's he's an advertising dollars estimated. David with him. Yeah. I mean, I think that's right. And I think one of the most interesting pieces about this conversation is that we're not just looking at, you know, radio in a bubble because media landscape as a whole is changing, regardless of who's owning somebody stations, for example. You know, I'm twenty six sorry. I'm twenty five and I listened to the radio for exactly two hours each week, which is Sunday morning. Seven AM to nine AM, everyone should tune into keep hope alive radio beyond that. I listen to podcasts for twelve to fifteen hours probably every week. And that I think there are some advantages there, but because of how podcasts are structured on the radio, you have maybe ten different options, you can tune into at a time, and you can influence the broader conversation through that through podcast. You have literally thousands of options. There are tens of thousands of podcasts out there. And that means a, you know, maybe you can find something really compelling to you. But also, I think limits the ability of some of those traditional outlets have the influence that they used to have on the puck. Narrative reverend. In here, Reverend before you go to Kevin gray. When I when you I injured radio as while Bryan Monroe was at chat, and to and to be fair, you know, Brian team that won a Pulitzer prize at just had to say that. No, no. It's just the truth reckless. He look Hurricane Katrina that having been said one of the things that we would talk about because we were in black owned media was the changing model and the resistance to change as as things changing Brian can you speak to that? This is an overused quote. But as we talked about earlier think Mike has changed in the media world for younger readers viewers, and consumers in that thing that I think we we were we were little slow to react to, you know, I'm a college professor now and most of my students who are you know in their late teens early twenties. I go around every choir. Vice president. Revenue. You know in in class. I have to soak how many people have read a newspaper in the last week. No handrail. How many people have read a magazine last month? Maybe one go how many people have listened to a podcast or read news content on their handheld device phone, their ipad, whatever everybody goes up. You know, the old clogging of would Wayne Gretzky thing. You don't take where the puck is gonna be. That's what we have to do in black media. We have vision fails to capture the the younger readers viewers, Quinn, everyone when you're in your twenties thirties when I was twenty thirty we had different media habits, then the students and the kids down too, and that's going to grow.
