Rahm: “This is not Chicago.” Posted on 08/06/2018 by Cal SkinnerAugust 6, 2018 This is what was in the Chicago papers this morning: sitting in the kitchen I saw a press conference featuring Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel. He gave a good speech, full of emotion. “This is not Chicago,” he asserted at one point. Good line, but untrue. As far back as 1969, Elvis Presley told us that.
