Apparently green rivers weren't what the Real St. Patrick in Ireland had in mind. It seems he was more sober than the cartoon Americans have made him into.
Rahm Emanuel is now Mayor Emanuel, the guy who pulled a Sarah Palin in Washington DC and left his job to chase another one (which is really the same as President Obama, who left Illinois a mess to chase the White House). Chicagoans had to choose whose rear-end they would kiss. With only screw-ups like Carol Mosely Braun on the ballot, the schmucks had no choice.
The Chicago Code TV show. What do you think? Lots of cliches in there. Teresa Colvin (Jennifer Beals) reminds me as a clone of the Dr. Lisa Cuddy (Lisa Edelstein - see the free download: 'Get Happy' - House musical performed by Hugh Laurie and Lisa Edelstein [HD]) character on House. The trouble I have is I don't believe detective Jarek Wysocki (Jason Clarke) would be palsy-walsy with Colvin, or that Colvin would be in the streets so much. The writing does not impress me. I give it one season.
