Chicago Tonight: The Week in Review: 9/20

On this edition of Chicago Tonight: The Week in Review with Joel Weisman, it was a violent Thursday night in Chicago as 13 people were shot in a single Back of the Yards park incident. There are reverberations from Bill Daley’s sudden departure from the governor’s race. There’s reaction to Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s announcement about building or expanding schools soon after so many were closed. The Ashland Avenue Bus Rapid Transit route aims to emulate successful systems in other cities, but Ashland drivers are concerned about losing two lanes of traffic and limited left turns on the route. And in sports, the undefeated Bears head for Pittsburgh.
