The Trib barely notes that today is the 25 anniversary of Harold Washington being sworn in. Both the major dailies take a pass on the story today, but not here at ArchPundit!
So let's start off with some of the existing resources on the net:
One of the single best episodes of This American Life explores Harold Washington's life and adds to that a brief bit about how Barack Obama's rise is related to Harold's tenure.
Mike Royko's column "So I told Uncle Chester: Don't worry, Harold Washington doesn't want to marry your sister. " This is also the 11th anniversary of Mike Royko's death. I posted that on the 20th Anniversary of Washington being sworn in on April 29, 2003.
848's rememberance--WBEZ was on top of the story in 1987
I'll be gathering more posts and hopefully encouraging a few folks to post some on their own today and linking to them and with a little luck we might just have a guest post.
I'll be covering the anniversary all week over at ArchPundit.
