Chicago might be the murder capital of Illinois, but they are kicking Peoria’s ass when it comes to free muni-WiFi
Posted at 12:13 pm on September 24, 2012
Once again, Chicago proves it’s superiority to Peoria:
Mayor Rahm Emanuel unveiled an ambitious plan Monday to establish Chicago as a hub for ultra-fast Internet service and provide free Wi-Fi service in public spaces.
The city kicked off its “Chicago Broadband Challenge” by turning on free Wi-Fi in Millennium Park Monday morning.
“Chicago will be one of the most connected cities in the world,” said Emanuel. “The establishment of a world-class broadband network in Chicago will create thousands of jobs and dramatically improve educational opportunities, economic development, health care services, and general quality of life throughout the city.”
Emanuel said the city will seek input from the public via the Chicago Broadband Challenge website to build the network and make sure it is customized for residents and companies.
The powers that be in Peoria briefly looked into providing free muni WiFi in Peoria about 10 years ago, but quickly abandoned the idea after it became apparent there was no way to do it and put money directly into the pocks of David Joseph, Jim Maloof and Gary Matthews.

This dude (although John Wayne would probably beat this fucker with his own gun):
HOUSTON (AP) — A Houston police officer shot and killed a one-armed, one-legged man in a wheelchair Saturday inside a group home after police say the double amputee threatened the officer and aggressively waved a metal object that turned out to be a pen.

I was deeply involved in covering the 2005 city council/mayoral elections. At the time, I strongly opposed Dave Ransburg, and I did back Jim Ardis. I liked his strong anto-crime message.
But it’s time for the 2013 elections — eight years later. Granted, Ardis didn’t go out and cause the crime problem. But he’s going along with cuts to the current police force, something I would have3 thought impossible from the man who gave us the anti-crime message in 2005.
I have no doubt that conditions in Peoria would today be worse had Ransburg won. We have no idea what horrible contractor welfare projects never made it to the council with Ardis as mayor that would have been quietly approved otherwise. But still …

Good news for third parties:
Former congressman Virgil Goode Jr. will remain on Virginia’s presidential ballot after state Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli II concluded an investigation into fraud allegations leveled at Goode by the state Republican Party.
Cuccinelli found, according to a news release from his office, that “while there may have been certain irregularities, nothing he examined would prevent Goode from being certified for the Virginia ballot in the upcoming November presidential election.”
A Washington Post poll of Virginia released this week showed Goode getting 2 percent support among registered voters, while Libertarian Gary Johnson got 4 percent and Green Party nominee Jill Stein took 1 percent. President Obama led Romney in that five-way matchup, 48 percent to 40 percent.
