    I for one an tired of “menu” money. There is very little oversight on how it is spent. I’d love to see how much “menu” money gets paid to staff (ie relatives on the payroll) in the 50 little fiefdoms of Chicago.

    Yes, some alderman spend it wisely. But if you look at the crummy streets and services in some of the alderman’s wards, one has to wonder where the money is going.
