Alderdogs

“Well, dogs have legs,” said Smith, ever the country philosopher. “And a dog that has legs has got to run. They want to use those legs. So let ’em run! I say, ‘Run dogs, run!’ “

John Kass compared the now liberated aldermen to big dogs.  Pit bulls.  Strutting their stuff, banging into each other, trying to get some face time with the media, running for mayor.

The Aldermen are dogs.  The pack of 50.  Mangy mongrels.  Junk yard, flea bitten, barking bowsers.  Alderman Ed Smith was wrong about one thing though.  He, and his fellow pack of pooches do have legs.  They do want to use those legs.  The want to lift them high and use Chicago as a fire hydrant.
