For you Mike Royko fans out there... 2 rare finds for sale.. The full last edition of the Chicago Daily News Newspaper both autographed by Mike Royko

Hey Shave....

I know you have a ton of news junkie readers and I am figuring many are old enough to be former readers of Mike Royko's daily column that was featured in several Chicago newspapers.

I was a young newspaper boy for the Chicago Today and the Chicago Daily News afternoon newspapers. Long story short I met Mike Royko and he autographed these two last edition Chicago Daily News newspapers for me. They are in great condition and secured in frames.

Can you post them on your blog and see if anybody is interested in purchasing either one or both? I am take the family on a long awaited vacation and can use the extra money. This 2% raise we got from the police department just isn't cutting the double digit cost increase of everything today.

Thanks Shave.

TO ALL THE MEDIA TROLLS TAKE NOTE -

Mike Royko was the last "GOOD" reporter for the city because he didn't kiss the ass of politicians and told it like it was.

We need more politically accurate reporters like Mike was, instead of the "politically correct", biased, liberal whiny babies that pollute the papers - and airwaves - with half-truths and slanted reporting daily.

"Skid" Mark Brown, Roe Conn, Mary Mitchell, Greg Hinz, Neil Steinberg, Carol Marin, Chuck Goudie, all of WGN, Fran Spielman, etc. - please take note.

Next case.

That 2% raise is just high enough to bump a lot of us into another tax bracket where we actually take home less.......

Use to love reading Royko's columns. They were pretty good. Thought his "alter-ego" Slat Grobodnick or what ever was kind of corny. I talked to Royko once years ago and he was a real jagoff in real life.Condesending asshole who acted as if you should be sucking his dick just to be honored with his presence. No wonder his kid turned out the way he did.

Sorry Perry,Royko was as full of shit as the ass wipes today.In 1979 I had the misfortune of having him write a column about an incident I was involved in,his article was total bullshit.

If you don't remember, Royko was a damn liberal. He fucked with politicians anyway. He was almost always an entertaining read, except when he's get on his anti-Reagan soap box. He's the one that coined the term, "Aldercreature", I believe.

Roe Conn is not a liberal, dopey, he's not real conservative, but he's not a liberal.

To the dork that says Ernie Banks was a jagoff, did you ever meet him? I did, I was in 8th grade and he pitched to us after school. He was picking up his kids and took the extra time on a Friday afternoon to pitch to the group of us. I doubt any of these rich bastards today would throw a couple of pitches to a dozen kids. Ernie did. It wasn't a staged event, either. We all got his autograph and he spoke to us for a few minutes and almost all of us were white kids.

Royko was a freak lib-tard columnist until he got rolled by some shitbirds after staggering out of a downtown tavern. My dad investigated that case at the old Area 6. After that dose of reality Royko became much more conservative in his columns.

Mike Royko absoultely would have voted for Obama. He might not have voted for our beloved leaders re-election, but he'd have voted for him the first time.
