Governor's office exploring whether it can fire Metra board



A savvy columnist doesn't expect his suggestions to echo through the chambers of power. But the flip line at the end of my Friday column -- linked to in the post below -- about how the governor should fire the entire Metra board did resonate somewhere. According to his press secretary Friday, Quinn's office is looking into it. See details on my first post on the Sun-Times blog:

Addendum: within a few hours, Quinn's office decided that, alas, firing the Metra board is beyond the governor's powers, at least for now:
