Money and Politics in Zoning -- Who Would Have Thought?

The Chicago Tribune has a remarkable series of stories based on an investigation into Chicago zoning practices.  From their summary:

The series has examined how aldermen ignore city planners and frustrated residents as they frequently permit new and bigger buildings that leave neighbors in their shadows.
