Happy Birthday, Mike Royko

Thanks to the Chicago Blog for reminding us that Mike Royko would have turned 75 today. You can read some of his past columns online as reprinted in One More Time and For the Love of Mike, both from the University of Chicago Press. Of course, we read his classic book, Boss: Richard J. Daley of Chicago, for our January 2007 book club selection.
