St. Barack and his moneybags

Sen. Obama's hometown Chicago Sun-Times has been running investigative reports into the closer-than-realized ties between that knight without reproach and his sleazy slumlord patron Tony Rezko, who seems to have sent a lot of money Obama's way over the years: First, Second, Third, and a commentary. Does this mean that the idea of all that is pure and holy being embodied in a Chicago politician was ridiculous from the beginning?

My family is from South Chicago-actually my mother from Hammond, Indiana and my father from the area by the old USS Chicago Works and the parish church, originally intended to be a minor basilica, St. Michael's-known as (so help me!) "The Bush".

We used to go to an ice cream place next to a movie theatre called The Gayety. They made their own ice cream-I've never tasted better anywhere. The owner was a Greek with, it was rumored, mob connections and the place was allegedly financed by Sam Giancana himself because he liked the ice cream.

When the area was infested so badly by las cucharachas they had to move they moved into a strip mall in, I think, Midlothian or Tinley Park. They quit making their own ice cream shortly thereafter and became a generic imitation Baskin Robbins. Today, young white ethnic South Chicagoans-what few there still are, a very few-regard one's saying they were at the old Gayety's like retro-70s groupies look at people that actually met Jim Morrison or Janis Joplin.

All the oldsters in South Chicago say places like Gayety's and Duke's Pizza were never money makers-the mob fronted them because they liked the food. No one says that of the Purple Steer-the food was good, but not mob good.

Chicago politicians grant themselves the right to vote proxy for the dead. Not the same thing at all.
