Saturday, it's nice outside,

you can work on your studies later.  But they're waiting for you.

The excuse for damn near everything: "You're a racist!"

That includes you daring to ask why a public office can't do its job.
Yesterday, roughly two weeks later, WGN came back to the story and found that the situation was still a mess. There is still a line of people showing up at the Daley Center for traffic court only to find out traffic court is online only at the moment. And one of the people they had interviewed for their earlier story finally received a notice about the online court date. The court date was July 7 but on the back of the postcard the date it was mailed was July 16. This particular man had driven three hours each way and waited 3 hours on a line to find out he’d missed his online appearance.

WGN finally got a chance to speak to Court Clerk Dorothy Brown about why all this was happening and her response was, shall we say, very interesting. Brown said the only reason she was being asked was because WGN “felt like this black woman’s office had to have done something wrong.”
"Why hasn't this been straightened out?"
"You're just asking me because I'm black!"  Jeez.
