One gen-u-wine perk of my Court job is having the type of office view usually afforded only by financial guys, megalawyers or similarly tax-bracketed -- 10th floor northeast corner in the middle of the Loop overlooking Daley Plaza with walls of floor-to-ceiling windows. I mean, come on. (And all the mediators have floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking Dearborn or Washington -- not bad.) It's especially nice when it gets dark earlier. At 4:45 today, these were the Daley Plaza's United States, Cook County, and Chicago flags all flying above Dearborn looking north at twilight, November 6, 2014.
