Rahm: I’ve Got Seven Million Dollars, Don’t You Mess With Me

Dear Readers,

The latest news coming from Rahm Emanuel’s campaign for mayor of Chicago gave me a chance to write this piece for The Huffington Post, featuring one of my favorite and most inspirational people, the great Mississippi/Chicago blues singer, Muddy Waters.

It was Muddy’s song, “Hoochie Coochie Man,” in which Muddy sang: “I’ve got seven hundred dollars, don’t you mess with me,” that inspired me to write the piece.

I hope you’ll check the piece out here, (the top-featured post in today’s Chicago HP edition). And I hope you’ll share it, post it, and twitter it, besides. For one thing, the musical clip of Muddy will start your day out just right.
