Update! I drove by the Westchester Arby’s. Their drive-thru features something called a “Vittleveyor.” It is a fast food version of a pneumatic tube in which you place money in a cup and then the food appears before you via a mini elevator.

Kind of an amazing paragraph: "Current Forest Park Chief Tom Aftanas, who in 2017 hired his own son as an auxiliary officer, declined to discuss the Alvarez case. 'I have to watch what I say,' he said. 'What I have to worry about is the possibility of a civil suit coming.'"

In 2018 the gun of Forest Park auxiliary officer Milton Alvarez was stolen from his car and used in the murder of 66-year-old Michael Harris. It’s one of many incidents involving civilian officers who lack the same training as full-time officers

Among the biggest critics of under-trained auxiliary cops are police unions. “When a department uses auxiliary police officers, I think they open themselves up to a lot of liability,” said Chris Southwood, president of the IL Fraternal Order of Police

That might prove impossible at times and if so it should be reiterated that she's a proven liar.

Now has a follow-up - some of the new women elected are interested in gender-neutral language: Will we have council members or alderpeople or some other word to convey that anyone can be in this position of power? We'll see! Thanks !

It has been a while since I’ve been there but I have a vivid memory of it being a complete clusterfuck. Next time I’m nearby I’ll report back.
