Rahm Skips the Snow in Bali Ha'i
Rahm Emanuel, socialite mayor and best buddy of Chicago educational profiteers, was lucky enough to escape Chicago's polar vortex on an all-expenses paid vacation to Asia! He was fortunate to miss the snow, the Arctic temperatures, and the CPS nonsense (which Karen Lewis thankfully resolved through tenacity and common sense). He returned just as the crisis was handled.
A trustworthy source speculates Rahm has been refreshing himself in beautiful Bali, where the current temperature is 75 and mild blue waves lap onto soft, white sand. We hope that he's had the opportunity to sample a Balinese array of food in padang-style, where diners help themselves to a variety of delicacies, such as rendang, a spicy stew marinated in coconut milk. And what would a vacation in Bali be without a visit to Tirta Gangga, the water playground designed by a prince in the Royal Family of Karengasem as a resting place?
You needn't have worried, Rahm! Karen Lewis sorted out the silly little problems here in Chicago, like convincing Barbara Byrd-Bennet that frostbite isn't a necessary component of excellence.
We hope you wore your sunscreen, especially after swimming in those crystal-blue waters!
