The Maynard Gang

Though explained in a previous column, one usage in the Maynard Café lexicon perhaps requires reiteration of further clarification. That is “Hizzoner” as a title for Maynard Mayor Gary Hart.

The term was used in the 1950s and 1960s to designate Chicago political boss Mayor William Daley. Hizzoner Mayor Daley was both diligent and innovative in running up Democratic vote tallies. While a man of many and manifest talents, we doubt that His Honor Hart would be useful in similar enterprises.
