Rahm’s ‘Velvet Shiv’

-CNC columnist James Warren: Emanuel’s budget report is “the equivalent of a superficially alluring velvet shiv” to the back of former Mayor Richard M. Daley’s administration.

HIGH TIME
Emanuel’s new top cop said police would continue to make arrests for marijuana possession but could issue tickets rather than jailing suspects. “I think you’re going to see some changes,” Police Supt. Garry McCarthy said.

DREAM (ACT) COME TRUE
Gov. Pat Quinn will sign legislation today allowing the children of illegal immigrants to receive private college scholarships and enroll in state college savings programs.

LOLLA LAND
Organizers of the the Lollapalooza music festival were exempted from paying the city’s amusement tax after retaining the nephew of former Mayor Richard M. Daley to negotiate their contract.
