#84 - Harold
I sorely miss a time in our American history when public figures inspired us. TAL reminds us of one of the last pubic figures who was able to inspire Chicago to come together after turbulent times. Harold Washington flew under my radar during his time as Mayor. I remember hearing about him but now I feel like a know him. Hear what some have to say about him after he was gone. "He was fairer than fair".
