My Scary Encounter With Chicago Mayor Daley - by John Lott

...The University of Chicago is one of the nation's top private universities, and, despite its name, it does not have any formal links with the city of Chicago or any other government entity. Yet, one day, I was suddenly faced with immediate removal from my position at the university. What had happened?

On December 15, 1998, I learned from Dan Fischel, the law school's Dean, that Mayor Daley had called up the president of the University of Chicago, Hugo Sonnenschein. Mayor Daley reportedly had told Sonnenschein that he had great plans for the relationship between the city and the school but that my continued presence at the university was going to do “irreparable harm” to that relationship.

I was then faced with two different termination options: immediately resign from the university or stay until July and promise not to talk to the press any more while I was there.

What had I done?...

Hm. Shows what Daley and his ilk like bloomberg really are at heart. Thugs.

They don't want anyone to have guns because disarmed people are easier to push around.

It's worse than that. They don't just want to take your guns away. They want to silence you entirely. They don't ever want the truth to see the light of day unless it's their version of the truth. That's not thuggery. It's tyranny.
