Mayor Daley Detached

By PAM BERNS
If our mayor ever spent any time up in our lakefront parks on a summer weekend day, he would see the hundreds of minority family enjoying picnics, cooling off in hot weather while taking in the beauty and breezes of the lakefront.
In a recessionary time such as this, why do we make enjoying the lakefront that much of a burden on the poor and minorities? Why are we charging the poor exorbitant rates just to park their cars? This parking meter boondoggle would make Daniel Burnham roll over in his grave.
