The photo of this week's Time magazine cover guy is accompanied by a question that I can only assume is rhetorical. Because the answer to the question about Chicago's mayor--why are people mad at him?--should be readily apparent to anyone following recent headlines about the 50 Chicago schools slated to be closed. It's certainly obvious to nine-year-old Asean Johnson, who gave the mayor a piece of his mind when his elementary school was on the chopping block.
It doesn't seem to be a question anyone else is really asking, so I wondered if maybe it might be on the mind of the man himself. In which case I'm happy to oblige and use my letter this week--to tell him why they're mad.
