Today’s quotation: The gravest of political sins” from Mike Royko

This is a great one from Mike Royko:

Worst of all, he had committed the gravest of political sins, next to losing an election: he had allowed politics to creep, to gallop, into the schools.

He’s describing the decline in Chicago politics under then Mayor Edward Joseph Kelly that eventually led the subject of his 1971 book, Richard J. Daley, to eventually seize power. Check out the book, it’s a great read.
