Brickbat: Military Honors


Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has apologized to motorists who were ticketed during a funeral procession for a local Marine killed in Iraq. Hundreds of people lined the streets for the procession. Some drivers pulled to the side of the street and got out of their cars to show respect, where they were given tickets for parking illegally. Officials say they have voided all tickets issued in the area of the procession.
