Melissa Block talks with veteran Chicago reporter Carol Marin about the legacy of Richard M. Daley, and how it compares to that of his father, Richard J. Daley. Marin says both mayors had autocratic styles, but that the son learned from the father. She says when Richard J. Daley leaves the major's office, he leaves behind a physically transformed city, but he also leaves behind a terrible crime problem and schools that haven't been much improved.
