Happy 65th to a certain mayor of a certain Midwestern town on the shores of a certain lake. And today also marks the 23rd anniversary of the first broadcast of WTTW's nightly newsmagazine, Chicago Tonight. On the inaugural episode, legendary broadcaster John Callaway sat down with Mayor Harold Washington.
