Some Reads for Thursday

A fake Democrat who has been absolutely devastating to schools in Chicago got himself re-elected; however the most significant thing about this election is the fact ol' Rahm was the first mayor in the history of the city to face a runoff.

He's just terrible, right down there with Andrew Cuomo and Cory Booker in the faker's Hall of Shame:

Teachers and other city workers must view this as a sharp warning that the unions are preparing to sabotage their struggles as they did in the one-week teachers strike in 2012, which the CTU called off abruptly, paving the way for Emanuel to push through the closure of 50 schools and the elimination of more than a thousand jobs.

Randi Weingarten is an outright fraud and, as a lawyer, has no business heading a TEACHERS union.

Obituary: Noted writer Ivan Doig, 75, has died of multiple myeloma at his home:

He wrote 16 books, including the so-called McCaskill trilogy, three novels about a fictional Montana family covering the first 100 years of state history. His 1979 memoir, "This House of Sky," was a finalist for the National Book Award.

In 2007, Doig won the Wallace Stegner Award, which recognizes someone who has "made a sustained contribution to the cultural identity of the West." He was also the recipient of the Western Literature Association's lifetime Distinguished Achievement award.
