    Artistmac, let me reinterate what you wrote with a change or two in parens: "I choose to live in the south side Chicago (NORTH OF HOWARD) neighborhood where I have lived for the last 56 (55) years, not because I 'dont know any better or are part of the issues or at minimum subscribe to it', but because this is MY street, MY block, MY house (apartment), MY neighborhood, and I'm not going to be run out of here by anyone. BTW, artistmac, Juneway is not a jungle and never was. That nickname was given to the neighborhood many, many decades ago and was not a pejorative at the time.
