All this right wing blather about unions and tenure is just so much nonsense.

Assuming elementary school is K-5, shouldn't the oldest 5th grader be 11-12? A 13 year old needs to be out of a mainstream elementary school. Must have failed about twice at that point.

Nope, Chicago tried in vain to ban citizen from having guns even in their homes in order to protect themselves from criminals and gang bangers who had guns. But the anti-carrying ordinance is well in effect. Teachers, liquor store owners, bank managers etc can't carry guns!
The only good news is the corrupt, taxacholic, spendaholic shit Mayor Daley is stepping down. The only scary part is that all the people slated to take his spot are 10 fold worse. Expect Chicago to be even worse and in 2 years we might actually miss Daley!
Oh why can't my wife listen to me when I tell her I want to move back to AZ or over to TX!
Thanks, but not thanks. Chicago is one of the rectums of the country.
