“The Splendor of Cities” by David Brooks (TIMES, 2/8/11)

In this paean to Chicago which “has thrived because it has had a good leadership,” David Brooks manages to stroke that “warmhearted Machiavellian,” Rahm Emanuel, who is very busy running for mayor of the windy city.

A much happier person now that he is back in Chicago, he is ready to reform the city’s public education system, complete with the usual conservative “school performance contracts.”

Apparently, David Brooks will be riding on the campaign bus. What will the future bring?
