To the editors:

Fascinating article on why the Tribune endorsed Orbach [February 27]. Now please unravel why they endorsed Eisendrath. In a field of fine candidates, they picked the weakest and least experienced. Second grade teaching does not qualify one for the Chicago City Council -- maybe seventh grade, but not second grade. There has to be a reason. Could you figure it out?
