Where Have all the Cowboys Gone?

Oh snap, I mean where have all the characters gone? Chicago Tribune columnist Eric Zorn makes a good point. With Burt Natarus and Arenda Troutman losing their aldermanic seats, are we as a city losing our characters? Sure we’ll always have Daley, but Natarus gave us life. I don’t want to sound like a suck-up because Zorn has been a great Schad supporter, but this is just the kind of blogging we need after an election. Yes it’s easy to read the winners and losers and go about your day, but even thought it was probably the right decision does the city lose something when we lose our characters? Who is left? Check out his list of characters and a ton of comments here. I hope someday that someone does this column again and a commenter says “well, we still have Justin Kaufmann, that boob.”
