The excellent Beachwood Reporter has a run-down of all the comings and goings now that John Stroger is planning on stepping down. This whole Cook County Board mess is so disgusting and so shows how little the board cares about democratic process; instead of merit, we get nepotism. So instead of editorials and moaning and complaining, I ask you: what's to be done? Protests? Letter writing campaign? Vote Republican? Email our inbox with your idea.
