Anyone who loves cities and city politics had to love Tom Menino. Old school, he lived for his city. And Boston is better for it. RIP.From Reset to Relapse, a look at the state of U.S.-Russia relations with Fmr Ambassador @McFaul and @peterbakernyt on Friday @UChiPolitics..@BilldeBlasio It was a great pleasure to meet your inspiring crew! Thanks for inviting me.

Looking forward to welcoming Elizabeth Wilner of @CookPolitical, brilliant analyst of campaign ad trends. @UChiPolitics today.Striking juxtaposition: Ebola fear rampant, despite negligible threat to Americans. But thousands fall victim to gun violence each year.

New wrinkle in tight IL gov race. Did Rauner use his clout to try and muzzle a senior statehouse reporter? http://t.co/hOVUA4giG0How czar we've come! Old czar foes now demand, and get, one. http://t.co/Ss8Kk3rHC5.@gretawire No doubt there is role for media to play. But fanning unwarranted fear is more about attracting viewers than informing public.Modern times: Having feverishly beaten the Ebola drum, the media is now turning to stories about unwarranted panic over the disease.

@KarlRove says "good riddance" to Eric Holder, calling him a "partisan hack." Probably nostalgic for the days when HE ran Justice Dept.Two-to-one early voting edge in Iowa and some signs elsewhere suggest superior targeting and organizing could help Ds tip senate odds.

For all the partisan shots, it is Holder's bipartisan efforts at badly-needed sentencing reforms for which he will be long remembered..Looking forward to @CEAChair Jason Furman and a superb panel, led by @AnnieLowrey of @NYMag, on state of middle class. @UChiPolitics 9/29.

My first impressions notwithstanding, worth reading @WayneSlater of Dallas Morning News on Perry indictment. http://t.co/vDIvBbOlEi.Thanks to @MikeBloomberg, for standing up to gun lobby bullying and devoting himself and his resources to the cause of safer communities.

That's implied by those who objected to my Tweet and would be a lot more serious. But then why haven't the prosecutors said it? 4/4Is the charge that Perry plotted to push her out so he could put his own person in and stifle ongoing corruption probes of his allies? 3/4I understand that if the DA had quit, as Perry demanded, the Governor would have had the authority to replace her. Correct? 2/4I've gotten lots of unhappy emails after my Tweet that Perry indictment looked "sketchy." So here are my questions: 1/4.Great luck to my old friend and partner @davidplouffe.
