Ken Bennett
Ken Bennett joins the staff of Mayor Rahm Emanuelthis January. He is the Deputy Chief of Staff and the Director of the Mayor's Office of Public engagement. Translated it means Bennett will serve as a direct link in city government with external/internal partners. Ken is perfectly suited for the role. He has been on President Obama's staff with his initial run as Congressman to State Senate to U.S. Senate and to the White House. Ken has served in the White House and most recently as the Regional Representative for the U.S. Secretary of Labor in the midwest region. Everybody loves Ken. He is a real community organizer with roots at TWO and PUSH. Bravo.

Fashion . The color for 2014 is Orchid. Just in case you didn't know. That's in your new dress, shoes or accent pieces. But it is a must.
Question: Have you noticed the Chicago Tribune attacks on Black academic women. The first front page story was on Dr. Paula Meres, Chancellor at the University of Illinois. She was reamed because she did not spend enough money on entertainment. Second, it was Angela Henderson, Acting Provost at Chicago State University She is taken to task for incorrect quotes on a doctorate she has worked on for 8 years with 5 academic advisers. Is it my imagination?
