While we may be accustomed to Richard M. Daley’s peculiar way with words, his father could deliver a humdinger of a malapropism himself. Chicago’sother mayors didn’t quite have that gift. Whether they attempted a greaterlevel of gravitas or just spoke plainly, their words live on as a testamentto the aspirations of Windy City politicians and the realities of governance.
