Some Quick Hits

Writing nearly two years ago, I noted the gulf that needs to be bridged between the liberal blogosphere and certain traditional core Democratic constituencies, particularly labor.

The Chicago Transit Authority is recruiting ordinary riders as "mystery shoppers" to report on conditions and needed repairs. Silly Chicagoans -- Bostonians don't wait to be asked!
