  • You're certainly assuming a lot about me, and you seem fixated on terms to call people. Hallmarks of a racist, you're always thinking in terms of labels. Look at me, if I wanted to address you, I'd say "@Dr. Magic." See, that's how a non-racist thinks and talks.

    I posted in reply to someone who talked about the disadvantages of voting for Rauner. "Cutting off your nose to spite your face" is an expression used to describe self-destructive behaviour, it doesn't literally mean cut of your nose, etc. And, I replied to a post talking about voting for Rauner in this situation, and I said something about that subject. If you though your posting wasn't about that, then you didn't need to reply. So, why did you reply? Were you just trolling? And what is this nonsense about kleenex? You in high school or sumtin'?

Hermosa Park

Are they ever going to update Hermosa Park? I feel like I need a tetanus shot every time I take my baby there. All the factories around there should donate money to update the park.

  • Does the park have an advisory council? If so, join it; if not, form one. Many parks recently got new playground equipment. The ones that did had active volunteers advocating for them.

  • I just think that they're afraid if they do update the park, it will get vandalized or destroyed. I think most money in this neighborhood went to Ames Middle School when they first built that, and then to North Grand...both multi-million dollar schools and still under performing. I have a...

    I just think that they're afraid if they do update the park, it will get vandalized or destroyed. I think most money in this neighborhood went to Ames Middle School when they first built that, and then to North Grand...both multi-million dollar schools and still under performing. I have a 12 y/o and a newborn and for my 12 y/o I decided to purchase a jungle gym for my yard and am going to do the same for this one. I too don't think that Hermosa Park is that bad, but then again...if you see some of the other parks, yes... it's quite humble.
