We go from normal highs in the mid sixties to normal highs in the mid seventies by the end of the month, and we pepper those that increase with sporadic 90 degree day, certainly 80 degree days. So it's a month and oh, we had another 57 minutes of daylight. So the days continue Elaine today, So it's all good. And the lake is in a warming phase. Still little cool and you get that wind off the lake Ng cool off. Mine In June, the Lakers warmed to the point that lake breezes air no longer those things we fear and said turning the lakeshore areas in the veritable icebox is but And that's over doing it Some. I mean, bringing in some cool air along the lakefront because we don't get ice or freezing temperatures but along the lake with the lake breeze, but it does get cool. And by the time you get the mid junior you're through with that the lake breezes are very comfortable and actually You know Tendo word off those credible hot spells if everything's right on occasion. You know, Speaking of warming and cooling we were out with featuring this last week on the show. I don't know if you've heard of this time, but in Palestine, they have a snow mound and it's still there. It's in a parking garage, and it's hard because they kind of mood all the all the snow into that area when they when they clear the parking garage over this very snowy winter, and it's still there, and we had confirmation of that because the folks who run the auto and truck repair across the street called into the show.

And I remember there was a place down by Lawrence Avenue. I'm the Lake Shore, where they dumped a lot of the snow and there was still piles. Snow left there. A nd June that year, you know is melting away, but you could still see evidence of it so that you know it's not unheard of. But that is kind of interesting. They hear of a specific location where that's going on. I, You know, I think hitting him with right soils and dry weather going into a summer You tend to increase your odds of a hot summer. The hottest summer we ever had in terms of number of 9800 degree days was 1988. That was also a terrible drought year and interestingly we're running three inches. Below the rainfall level we had going into that summer this year on that raises the specter of, you know, maybe some hot days yet, But one thing I think that's different between this summer and 1988 was that Was far more widespread across Midwest. We've actually had some pretty reasonable amounts of moisture out in to the south and west of us on DATs a little different than 1988, but we're sure dry here and I think you know the outlook is foreign above normal. Uh, summer in terms of temperature around here, so they're on a meld off those remaining snow piles Pretty expeditiously you would hope is we head toward it. I would have hoped they would gone already. But apparently that one still standing Well, we'll keep an eye on that time. Um E. How? Hey, can I ask you before? Run out time here. How you doing?

"He covers City Hall joining us Now, Greg is this is busy a day or is it coming down a little bit? I know these have been pretty pretty hectic in your world. You know it's up and down, but even the down is pretty up. Usually You know something else I saw here. Alderman Brand new Riley changed his Twitter background to pot Paradise Alderman. He seems to be pretty upset. It's one of the things that's coming out of City Hall right now. There. Mayor is not really keen. Or maybe she's already shut down the idea of having one of these marijuana dispensaries in the downtown district, which would be his ward, and he's not happy about it. Yeah. You know, it's not necessarily knew because the mayor has been opposed to it from the beginning. She said. She didn't wanna make it, uh, you know last year and even 2019. She said that She didn't wanna make it into take away the family friendliness of it. You know, as though she doesn't want people's selling weed right outside the bean, which is probably something that everybody would agree on. But she is she's taking it pretty hard line from the beginning against weed downtown, and the position now is that with storefronts vacants emptying out and all the vacants after the civil unrest in the pandemic. There is some pot businesses want to come down. They should. And the mayor dismissed it way out of hand yesterday and she said that, you know, she doesn't want it to be a pop paradise, which I think some people, um And you can see the Alderman. Two are rolling their eyes at because they would say nobody's trying to make downtown upon paradise, Although it is a good throws. It is a great phrase, and he's gonna use it. I'm sure I don't know if he's totally lost. This bet. Would you say it's done done? Not gonna happen. Or you think that there might be some discussions Still, would we ever see it? A downtown dispensary in the near future. I think what all the men Riley has on his side is that it doesn't make business ends. Put a dispensary business down there somewhere. And so there's going to be economic and financial pressures of the city. He is a fairly prominent and influential all the man he's not. You know, Um, he's not just one of 50. Here's a prominent alderman with a prominent ward, who, um, who is respected by his colleagues that said, it is hard to get something done. If the mayor doesn't want to get it done in this town, and even Even with all the chaos that has happened on their middle life that is still true, so to be determined We're not turning Michigan Avenue into the pot paradise, she said. His response, though, and he's already kind of taken a social media about it saying that, you know, look, there are no quality of life for crime related issues that directly Surround these dispensaries that they're currently operating. So it'll be the same. Downtown is his argument. He's also making the economic argument last night checked, We're broke. Couldn't we use a downtown sort of one? Maybe it's not a Michigan Avenue on the central business district or something like that. Maybe it's kind of off on one of the side streets around there something but Wouldn't it make sense economically, to do that kind of thing. They have been hugely profitable, right? Yeah, he made he made the point that you know. Next time they say we're broke and we need to raise property taxes. This is exhibit a form. Yeah, right. That's that is the other argument. You also have this ward by ward breakdown of Chicago Carjackings, Alderman. I guess they released it to the alderman. Police did Did you see anything that you looked through that data? I know it's 2018 2019 and 2020. They go ward by ward and describe how many There have been in each year. Anything you've got from that, Greg. Well, it's pretty astonishing just how widespread it is. It's literally all over the city. Um You know, from part of why it's gotten more attention is that a lot of Um, it Z hitting areas that don't get a lot of crime. And so that's scary. But there's also some pretty horrifying data for even areas that Have a lot of crying, so I live in Little village and I'm right next to the North Lawndale, which is much of it is the 24 Ford and they have a astonishing amount of Carjackings. And it's especially astonishing because it Zapata it's award with With relatively little population. So 40 Carjackings in that ward go a lot further than you know, 40 Carjackings in. You know the 42nd Ward downtown, which has so many people in it, so it But it is it is a citywide problem, and it is something that every single alderman black, white and Hispanic really cared about. It is really concerned about because they're hearing about it. For sure. And I heard that some of that very passionate city council like us, a committee meeting on Carjacking, trying to bring folks together the victims who spoke who had been victims of Carjacking themselves and others. I mean, just sort of a passionate cry for help here. And I wonder if when you look at what the city has proposed right now, if you think it makes a difference, are they adding some more cops created to these Carjacking units and some other things they're doing. That's a great question, you know, obviously more. More help is always good, whether or not but you know if you put in a bunch of health and you don't have a strategy, or you don't have a clear strategy that's also um not helpful. So you know, I would guess that the police Department would say We have a pretty good strategy. I think that, um the results will They're out whether that's true, but obviously, um, you know, the other end of that is saying we're gonna put 40 more cops. You know, that's not even one per ward and so It's not. Ah, that is a relatively low amount. But you know what else are they gonna say? Right? They're not going to say Well, we're working on it. They need to, uh We need the get the situation under control. First of all, because it is It is actually a real problem. And then they have the political problem of wanting the look like they're trying to get it under control, which is A very important issue for them.

"And that is Ryan Burrow. The WGN radio news directors in our studio. What did Dr Allison are? What he say today? Yes, some interesting things trying to clarify by the way she's getting her second vaccine. Today at one of the city College is one of the sights they've set up where the frontline workers have been getting their vaccine is Part of one A, but really the focus today on one B. These are teachers. These are first responders, firefighters, paramedics, police officers. Also, we've had much discussion about on WGN up. Prisoners would also fall people in the prison community. Both workers as well as inmates would fall in this category under the governor statements, so Those vaccinations can begin. January 25th. Now if you fall in that category, you've probably got a lot of questions and what Dr Ellison are what he said The commissioner of the Chicago Department of Public Health is there going to be four ways in which these vaccines are administered Number one. You go to your doctor call up set up an appointment. Say I need to get this vaccine. I fall in this category and then you guys can kind of negotiate scheduling there. Number two pharmacies will be distributing these vaccines so you can go to a target or a Walgreens or CBS get the vaccine there. Once again, everything is going to be by appointment. They don't want big, long lines, especially in the dead of winter like this. It's just not a thorough way to do this. They will be traveling to some of these communities that maybe Are underserved the homeless population and giving them vaccines. And the fourth way is actually some employers will be able to distribute and administer at work. Which is something I know that We've talked about here. I'm sure people are listening who working downtown settings also wondering Hayes, the boss going toe be able to get someone to come in and vaccinate all of us. So the category one be includes teachers? Yes. Inmates. Yes, the other people in there would be any other medical people that have not been vaccinated rights. Paramedics, people, maybe first responders, police, firefighters and you'll make an appointment with your doctor. Go to Walgreens and say, Hey, I want to get it and if and then they'll put you on their list. Perhaps you have to demonstrate that you're in one of those groups. I'm not exactly sure how you prove your teacher or whatever, but then It's not a guarantee that they'll have the vaccine. No, and what she said is the way the vaccine is coming into The city right now is way below. Where demands gonna be the only got about 5% of the vaccine in they think in three weeks, you know that's going to step up. But, you know, just because you're a firefighter, and you're part of this one be or you're a teacher doesn't mean you're gonna be able to go to a CVS on Monday and get a vaccine. They're gonna prioritize, especially these doctors offices they're going to say. Yes, You are one beer, but we've got, you know, 65 year olds. We've got people with health conditions who you know would essentially be in the queue. We wanna administer to them first before we get to you so You know, Sit tight is what she's saying.

I've interviewed him several times for his books, including The Devil We Know, Sleeping With the Devil is Well, Blow the house down. He joins us on the phone line Now, Bob Welcome back to W G. N Hey, Good evening. Okay. Ryan Burrow. The news director here is well, I'm just interested. I mean, obviously, there were some intelligence issues here. Wouldn't be CIA would be FBI. But as you look at what happened today at the Capitol, What are your thoughts? Well, let me put it this way. I spent a couple decades in the CIA watching governments collapse. Countries implode in if I were a Foreign Intelligence office in Washington, D C Would be called sitting back to my capital. What's called the situation report saying, We don't know where this is going to go on. We don't know what's gonna happen to American democracy. I've just seen that it happened so many times and countries come on wound and You know friends that I was in the Sudan and we had a couple of Milan missiles were stolen from us. And they fired him to the front of Parliament and there went the government. You know, I know it's troubling. Let me put it that way I've set off and on Lee in the past few years, frankly, that it's come to this realization that other people have a long time ago. But we tend to think of things is permanent. You know, we tend to think if it's all we've known all our life or for much of our life. We think it's the way things are always going to be there. Sometimes we get lax, and I do think that's the case with our democracy. It seems unimaginable that it wouldn't exist, but there's no guarantee that it's permanent. No, not at all. I mean, people really angry in this country, and you know, you have to remember. That the capital has not been sac since 18 12, and that was thanks to an invasion. I mean, this is just this just never. This has never happened. And you have a president of the United States, which is encouraging this at this point, You know, I just don't know where it goes, and there's a lot of people in this country with guns. Um Madi economic problems, which is always the source of political problems. And we really haven't hit the wall. On on covert 19 in terms of economic damage. We'll be. The Fed can keep on dumping trillions into the market, but it will come to an end and it just sort of the convergence of all these events. And you have this is huge division. It's the last time I've seen it. This bad ever was when I was in Iraq and in 2000 and three Is there a Shia and the Sunni, and it was just like they didn't listen to each other, and they weren't going to Now, In that case, those were organizations. There was some kind of structure involved, right This at least from from what we saw today seemed to be pure chaos is that How this works. Sometimes is there no ringleader and people are just kind of operating on their owner? Do we think that maybe there were some some platforms that may have been involved that that created more organization that would release a bullet than what we're led to believe? The FBI was all over this, So there was nothing. There was no Twitter account that I've heard of yet. Let me put it this way. It organized this and they've been watching this group. And clearly the Capitol police and D. C played this down in order not to have a confrontation, which was clearly a mistake. But you know, once you get into a crowd like this, and it gets worked up Um, you know, capital is very hard to defend. You know, there was a story that people could take it. There's a story earlier this week that the leader of the proud boys have Monday was taken into custody for Damage to property for bad to burning of black lives matter Banner. And then there was talk of maybe a weapons charges. Well, um Okay. You're the spy. Was that part of an intelligence function? I mean, were they trying to defuse what happened today? Oh, absolutely. You decapitate the movement, Anybody that looks like an organized You take him out and in and put him somewhere else to put him away from this at the center of it, But I look at the proud boys in the boogaloo boys and you know the rest of it. I You know, it's just I don't see any organization there. I don't see any organization with Antifa. Don't see much of an organization with black lives matter that matters, so none of these groups are organized. But any time you have political troubles in a country they never do start organized. It's always isolated events. So it may be Washington today in L a today then it moves on to Chicago tomorrow and it just it sort of happened spontaneously. All right. I think a lot of people who are listening or thinking that you are Uh, Overly aggressive in your worries, sounding an alarm that doesn't yet need to be sounded. So walk us through it a little bit. Where you say you don't know where we go here. Where might we go? Well, we have never had this country when election was disputed in in a way like this, and you have so many people believe that election was stolen and that Biden administration is not gonna be legitimate. I can't give you a number on that. But Let's say it's 40 50 million people or more. Um, that is highly dangerous situation. If it's some, you know, marginal group that's crazy. You really don't care much. We have that many number of people that don't trust Washington. And not only that they don't trust science. They don't believe covert. They believe it's a hoax. And it's just this is what the Internet has done to the legitimacy of Washington. Is just incredible. I've never seen it. Mean, even during the McCarthy area era. I It wasn't nearly this bad. I mean, McCarthy was, you know, was dealing with a real problem, and there were The KGB was running 300 plus agents in the United States when he was after Um, So that was a real problem, and there was there was some justification. There's some justification for far far right far left groups but this whole this whole fantasies this That there what? What caused so many problems? It is shocking. There's nobody in the government that can tell you which way this is going. It's shocking. I've never seen anybody anything. What we're willing to believe Bob there. Sit.

I don't think we're too surprised that he is anxious to see the president no longer in office, but he just sent this statement out. He once again reiterated that he's increasing state patrol state police patrols around The capital and Springfield just to make sure that there is no undressed there and said this in there there is no doubt in my mind that President Trump's efforts to encourage a cool represent high treason to this democracy, our Constitution and all Americans. He poses a danger to our nation. He must be impeached and removed from office immediately.

All right, That's the situation in Springfield. Let's go back to Washington. John Bresnan is on the phone line. Now he is a D. C based journalist, co founder of Punch Bowl News. And was in the thick of it this afternoon, John Welcome to Chicago. Hey, good to talk to you guys. All right, tell me about your experience. Um, well, I was in the capital. I was actually in the House chamber when, uh, the started getting reports that protesters have breached the outer security barrier. There was a small temporary berry elected. Until I left the chamber and then went down into the rotunda, which is the giant dome. That's the route giant dough mix and look at the Capitol and there were hundreds and hundreds of protesters trying to Writers trying to get through the doors of the capital. They come all the way up the steps of the Capitol and they were trying to get through and they clearly a tools or some You know, metal poles or something. They started break the class the windows and then then protesters have gotten in on the Senate side, which is the north side of the Capitol and then came in. We ran into the rotunda and tried to let the other protesters and it was just all hell broke loose. So you know, I was way had leave and we saw that. You know, I saw officers getting knocked down and it was just it was terrible. John when I was coming in listening to all of this, The assumption was that the Capitol police didn't have the bodies to block them outside, So they kind of withdrew to inside the building to protect at least them from coming in. But well, clearly they didn't have the bodies to do that. But you're saying that there was not that sort of Corden of force inside the building to block the protesters. You know, I listen, I'm not gonna sit here and pass judgment on the Capitol police but clearly clearly clearly underestimated the scale. Of this protest the internist meeting intensity You did have President Trump telling protesters earlier in the day to go to the tap on protests. Um, I think you know once the protesters had reached the Outer Security LTD. And we're great next that building at that point today, I think the Capitol police had to make a decision on new deadly force to stop something from getting in the building. It was a pretty plating A couple moments there on day clearly decided not to and you know, they lost control of the capital. You know, I worked here 28 years, but I've never seen anything even even approaching this in the smallest possible web that they will do is security perimeter like that? Unbelievable. You know what time I'm with you, too. They'll be plenty of time to investigate. See what happens. I'm not playing this on the Feed of the Capitol police. I just was sort of trying to figure out how it all happened. Ryan Burrow is the news director here. W g N Yeah, a person died. I mean, I think that you know, we're gonna reflect on that with with all the chaos that we saw a person died today. In all of this, and we're starting to see some images of that. Where were you aware that that was going on? Did you hear a shot? Fired? What? When were you made aware that had reached that level? We had heard at the time Now I was on the house side. So I watched this crowd of hundreds of people trying to knock the doors down to the house chamber. And at one point people were, you know, throwing smoke bombs and the words way thought it was a fire. But that shooting happened on the other side that happened, understand it, But there was could have very easily been armed people throughout the complex because, you know, he won big on in the building without every need be. Inspector. Anything they were carrying backpacks they were carrying, You know all sorts of devices. I saw people carrying backs and all sorts of stuff, So I mean, it was just who's paying them on. You know the way T O Express it. We've got less than a minute, John. But you talked about smoke bombs there, and the police chief said that The protesters, you chemical incendiaries. Are you saying that inside the house or inside the capital? They were throwing smoke bombs themselves. Or was that police? No. As far as I could tell it with the protesters, because where I saw that smoke coming from There were no police. There was a good 10 15 20 minutes there. I didn't see and Capitol police officers and and eventually they cleared the area, but the point where I thought there was only protesters that came from them. I'm encouraged that the both the chambers are going to return to the floors, too. Maybe wrapped this up, or at least continue it to show air of defiance. But you've been around the capital. I've been around police. They're usually extremely careful after situation like this where you kind of surprised they're going back in. No, not at all. I was here on 9 11, and they went about you. And after the Capitol was evacuated that day, they went back. And I was here in 1990. When there was a Capitol shooting on day, Two police officers were killed. They stayed in session that day, And I think they're trying to send a message here that they're not gonna be cowed by this violence. They're going to do their job. They're gonna sort it by Certify Joe Biden's president of victory and move on with the business. The country. Yeah, I remember those officers being shot in Tom DeLay's reaction, right son to they would have been the House majority leader at the time. There was a gunfight in his office. But we've had bombing in the capital. We had terrorist attacks. There was that Puerto Rican nationalists attacked in the 19 fifties, There was a 1998 shooting and now Ridiculous by four that most serious breaches security. And and probably the most shocking. I think that the country but I think you're clearly members and senators and their reaction there. There. They were scared. You were stunned, but I think they're angry now, John president, and I hope we can talk again. Thanks so much.

They're required to get the stimulus payments out by January 15th. So they have your direct deposit information. That's where it went. I'll come back to the bombs in check. The other thing is they've mailed checks out. And if you don't get it by the 15th, That's not their problem. They blame that on the post office, but they expect to have everything out by January. 15th now The people who didn't get who had a closed account, the one they used for the last stimulus of the less tax returns closed.

Check it all by the time you follow your 2020 return and number four anybody who thinks that based on your 2020 incomes You should have still got in that original $1200 stimulus checks, but darn it.

That's a bar that we would all released. Many of us would hope to reach. And so that I think in and of itself is a is a good thing and hoping for brighter. Future's coming up in 2021 you've got the vaccines have been announced. And I know that the role has been slow as far as getting those into people but at least says that maybe some parts of what it is that we really enjoy about being out in about in and with each other will will be there for This next year, but you had so this is crazy in its I know what's happened. I've heard about it, You know, with different you know people in the news or notoriety where people have or sports right where they have a task to covert test right and it comes back positive. And then they have another one that comes back negative. It happened with Jimmy Johnson is one where it ended his streak here like a 14 years streak of racism and that ended it turned out to be a false positive. So you had sort of a brush with that situation yourself. Yeah, it was a lot of people have asked me. Why did you get tested in the first place? Which is a fair question? Because way had no symptoms. My wife and I have been fairly strictly quarantined. I mean, she's We go to the grocery store? Maybe once every two weeks. I actually ate inside a restaurant three weeks ago it right belly and drink. Well. It was so brave while the plate place just opened. It's called right Deli and drink. It's in Greektown. I like it quite a lot, actually have a new city article coming out about Right, Ellie and drink in the evolution of the Chicago delicatessen.

They're going out to a table our table in an isolated dining area. I mean, no one was near us. But you never know. Right? And so when I when I deal was with my daughter, Josie and her fiance, Max. Let's spend Thanksgiving together. This was in November. Of course. So two weeks before Thanksgiving, all of us going to taik Quarantine. Ah, week before Thanksgiving. We all get covert tested just to see if somehow we had it. All of us tested negative, Very cool. We're going to do that, or we plan to do the same thing I Christmas, so I took my first covert test. Came back positive. And I found that out on the 19th of December. So that cancels all our Christmas plans. I've got a quarantine for that. You know, they usually say two weeks, but when they I talked to the nurse on the phone, and she said what we're gonna count. We're gonna assume you were infected the day before the test. I mean that, you know, that's pretty liberal. I think the day before the test And then so that means you have to quarantine until, like the 24th or something like that. So I was like Okay, Um, But if it was my wife, Caroline, who have been so I live with way had a quarantine, too. So you know we're wearing could we weren't in bed together? Obviously, we're in masks around the house. Fortunately, we have a couple of floors in our house. We could separate by floors. I use a separate staircase to get down to the TV room so I can watch old movies, but basically, we're You know, living separate lives for a couple of weeks, But then I got another on the 22nd. I got another covert test. Came back negative. And then on the 28th. I got another covert tests came back negative. And I did it twice just to make double. Sure, I figure I'm going with two out of three tiebreakers, right? Yeah, right. I mean, if I figured two negatives in a row Now. So what do you but nonetheless, I had tested positive. And so what do you do when you test positive? Well, you assume that if you're not feeling any symptoms, perhaps you are asymptomatic, and I should know by temperature like three times a day for days on end. Never got over 97. I mean, my my temperature of anything was attending a low. Um, but I went out to, uh, to luminaria with some of our neighbors. They do it every year, they put the luminary out.

You know, it may be still wasn't safe to be around other people for their sake. And I had to agree with him. You gotta treat if even if you don't feel anything, If you test positive, you've got to assume that you could be transmitting to the disease to others. So strict avoidance of other human beings is a good thing to do. Anyway. It was wild. I got Testing in two places. And this might be something your listeners might want to consider if they feel they may have been exposed or a fae like us just wanted to make sure that they're clean before they get together for a meeting with, you know, our get together with even to other relatives.
