Today on Off Mic: The good news: We have a vaccine. The bad news: We’re still months away from it getting to the masses. Until then, the economy will continue to the struggle and that includes mass transit.We take a lonely ride on the south shore with one of the few remaining riders. And – saying goodbye to a 100-plus year old community newspaper in Porter County. And – who’s water is better? Chicago’s or Hammond’s Well, it’s up to Joliet to decide. All this on Off Mic.
