I was going to say something critical about raising city water rates based on comparisons to other Illinois cities, but on second thought that must be a mistaken impression. Here’s hoping tomorrow evening we see much more data on costs, projected usage and revenues, and a plan to ensure some of what’s brought in actually goes into infrastructure, as promised.

Meanwhile, enjoy if you’re so inclined this pro-Obama pictorial commentary set to Collective Soul’s “Run.” A delightful pairing, IMO.
