Apparently, Governor Quinn hasn’t “spoken to Mayor Emanuel in 10 days.”
The governor recently revealed that tidbit in an interview with the Sun-Times editorial board.
My guess is that the mayor’s in a snit ‘cause the governor won’t rubber-stamp his deal to set up a Chicago casino completely controlled by City Hall.
Just as the governor put the kibosh on the mayor’s plans to shove public money at the Cubs to rebuild Wrigley Field.
And just as the governor might—if we’re really, really lucky—block the mayor’s cockamamy scheme to waste $55 million in property taxes building a basketball arena for DePaul University and hotel on the near-south side.
In any event, Governor Quinn shouldn’t be too upset over the mayoral cold shoulder. The list of people the mayor’s not talking to is almost as long as the list of cronies he’s doling out goodies to.

critically acclaimed production featuring high school football,
editorial cats, powder blue bears, blackmail, disguises, Jimbo
Covert, whiteboard madness, and love. But mostly love.

MORE CRITICAL PRAISE
Alex Huntsberger at Centerstage Chicago gave the show a glowing
review, and we are appreciative of it. So just to recap:
“A wonderful show…Unlike the many shows that employ vast resources
but still fail to create a meaningful reality for audiences to lose
themselves in, “Mascot” creates the world of Mt. Sudden (sic) with
nothing more than a fine attention to detail…The comedy here is
dark, over-the-top, and definitely totally human.”

“…powerful, darkly funny—and ultimately sad…[Kevlyn] Hayes’
clever, graceful staging finds myriad onstage metaphors for the
protagonist’s disintegrating mental state…”
- Jack Helbig, Chicago Reader, Recommended -
“…Provocatively strange and unsettling…Bower’s deceptively clever
script has a kind of effortlessness…broaches all limits of
acceptable “consumer” taste…A Surrealist Nightmare…Borders on the
verge of sadism…”
