With Kane County Chief of Specialty Courts Melynda Benjamin graciously filling in for Larry, we welcome Cook County Commissioner Richard Boykin to the show this morning.
Commissioner Boykin just wrote a fascinating Tribune column on how to better contend with gun violence on Chicago’s South and West sides. And his precepts apply to any city facing a similar situation. After that horrific Fourth of July Chicago weekend, it’s time to stop attacking the symptoms and start talking about solutions.
An that’s exactly what we’re going to do on Left, Right and You.
Of course, Left, Right and You, Mondays from 9 to 10 a.m. and Thursdays from 3 to 4 p.m. with the Smiling Conservative, Larry Jones, and me, the Surly Liberal, on WRMN AM1410. Don’t miss it!
