    CBS plz do more investigative reporting. A tip about the Heroin Hut in Garfield Park yielded a news crew. You aired, and the next day the Heroin Hut that had been in a Chicago park was removed. City Hall won't listen to neighborhood complaints. BUT if it hits the airwaves, all of a sudden they are ON THE SPOT.

    THANKS for the Heroin Hut story that got it removed for a city park the next day!

    Plz do more efforts like this. It is effective. TRANSPARENCY is good.

    A walk down Michigan Ave leads one to believe we are a glorious prosperous city. Any tourist and foreigner can walk away with that impression. Heck, those who live in those privilleged zones can walk away with that wonderful impression.

    Driving from the Lake to Oak Park on Madison will shatter that impression. One can see just how quickly color changes, the environment changes, poverty begins, accellerates and you are in Tijuana in 1970.
