Visit What the Helen. A blog from the 46th Ward of Chicago. The ward of Ald. Helen Shiller, and they may have to change the name if she loses her bid for re-election next month. Either way it's a great blog. The subject matter is similar to another blog The Broken Heart of Roger's Park (BTW, I wrote about that blog here in August 2005.
The Broken Heart doesn't care much for Ald. Joe Moore (who's been responsible for the Big Box Ordinance and the Ban on Foie Gras) and What the Helen doesn't care much for Helen Shiller. It's great to see these blogs talk about the issues affect their communities and even highlight the short comings of their leaders. Alas it could be funny that once they get what they want (mainly the defeats of their loathsome incumbents) who knows what they'll be able to write about.
