Little Birdie Department...

We hear that State's Attorney Dick Devine, 50th Ward Resident, is considering not running for re-election.

Naisy Dolar told me during the campaign that Devine "was making calls on her behalf." One wonders, if this is true, whether Ald. Stone has anything to do with Devine's decision on his future. Stone, once a Republican (and said to control the 50th Ward GOP organization), has threatened to run a "strong" Republican against Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky because of her public support for Dolar. But I don't believe that Devine's name ever appeared in a public endorsement of Dolar. Still, Stone's wrath can be matched only by Emil Jones.

Regardless of Stone's part in all this, Devine may very well draw a substantial challenger in the Democratic primary for State's Attorney if he does run for re-election. This is one of the positions that Stone's fellow alderman have on their radar when they talk about Jon Burge and the use of torture in the Windy City. I'd hate for Devine to be the fall guy, but are the stars aligning against him?

A strong republican? A strong democrat is more likely a better choice and there are plenty.

Maybe the Stoners can convince Mike Moses to take a stab at Jan. You now, the candidate put up to take out Lou Lang.

I didn't think Stone ever supported Dick Devine. But he was a good friend of Jon Burge!

I hope it's not true. I have heard that Dick and Bernie aren't the best of friends, but I'd think Bernie would like having the State's Attorney in the neighborhood.

I always thought that Bernie was jealous of Dick's ease as a politician. But then, he has a lot more stamina than Bernie, so that's to be expected.

Do you think Mr. Devine could be convinced to stand for Democratic Committeeman?

I would think Naisy is gearing up for that race (Democratic committeeman).

Huh? Passing along political gossip, as I have on more than one occasion, should not be construed as vouching for the validity of that gossip. In this instance, I was asked pointed if I thought Dick Devine's "reconsidering running for re-election" (which I did not know) had anything to do with Stone's vow of vengence on his "enemies." I have no idea, and won't pretend to.

Jay, the AlderSPAWN are afraid of you. Which is funny, because you're more credible than anything I've seen on the Bernie Stone CAN TV show! Which isn't saying much. But at least I get some added value here, watching the alderman's family get all tied up in knots!

Amazing ,isn't it? You make up stories and these Stone-Hating cretins commend "YOUR CREDIBILITY".What a FOOL'S PARADISE you and they live in.

It's more a commentary on Stone's credibility than mine.
