". . .Chicago's reputation is tarnished more and more by too little being done to end shakedowns by city inspectors and others. The Sun-Times and the BGA found bribery common. They found tax skimming common. They found threats to patrons' safety overlooked for a few bucks in an envelope. They found unsafe buildings approved for a payoff. . ."

Editorial criticizes City Council's decision to stall on taking any action, a week into the Mirage series.
