I found myself chuckling over the absurd semantics of the Reader's February 12 page-one grabber and reference to page eight's headline, "Aldermania!"

The term sums up succinctly and best the madness surrounding Chicago's aldermanic elections, as demonstrated by the pols and their "henchfolk."

In fact I myself labeled just that the quadrennial (or is it biennial and it only seems like City Council members linger for four years?) event in a 1991 headline that appeared in a neighborhood newspaper I then reported for, edited, produced, and copublished, Community Free Press.

It is nice to see great minds think alike.

Now about those royalty checks...
