Happy Birthday, Mike Royko
Mike Royko would have been 75 today.
Royko was born in Chicago and never left it. He wrote for the Chicago Daily News, then the Sun-Times, and finally for the Tribune. His career should be measured in column inches. He wrote 7,500 columns. You do the math.
The Chicago Outfit is going to jail and the Cubs are in a pennant race. Wonders never cease. Hell freezes over. It would be great to get Royko’s take on such bizarre phenomena.
Hoist an extra beer for Royko today. Something domestic. Read and re-read.
