    Actually, that's always been my fear.

    That's why I disagree when people say Chicago should have an elected school board.

    The corporate influence is bad enough now, but we can blame Rahm if it fails.

    It would be a zoo if the corporations could buy the election and nobody would be accountable for their behavior.
