    Yes I'm one of those people. The ones who like facts and data over perception.
    How many ways can one person avoid answering the same point?
    Where are the actual positive public policy outcomes that the Daley's can take credit for?
    I've listed in detail those policies that scholars agree were poor decision making.
    So far you list nothing tangible.
