KIRKUS REVIEW

Ommm...Ommm..""God bless Mayor Daley...Daley is the greatest mayor Chicago ever had...In the Negro community he's like a god. He is a master with people""...Ommm...Ommm. Turn on with an alternating current: ""Television and radio do a wonderful job in focussing attention on the problems of our society...Many of them (newsmen) are hippies themselves...I am amazed at the media--at the distorted, twisted picture they gave...Certainly the members of this City Council will never hesitate to ask questions, to engage in debate...Put the alderman of the 40th Ward in his seat if he refuses to obey the rules...there are no ghettos in Chicago...I didn't create the slums, did I?...Violence accomplishes nothing...If they are burning the buildings down they should be shot."" For immediate transcendental transport: ""I resent the insinuendos...Together we must rise to higher and higher platitudes,"" Ommm. A Little Red Book of Windy City beatitudes for Daley living.
