Badger?

I know there have been some weird critter sightings around Irving Park. I found two prints back by the river at McFetridge the other day. What struck me is that it was big and had five toes. Dogs, Coyotes, Cougars and Bob Cats only have four.

  • yeah I thought raccoon but it was almost as big as my hand. Badger? I don't think we have bear in Chicago but we do have badgers in Illinois.

  • Greg V. Cycling Dude

    Rather than I badger, I would go with a large raccoon. On the rare chance, as they've been seen around here before, maybe an otter.

Plows and election results

Somebody (not me, I do not have the skills) should overlay today's plowing from http://clearstreets.org/ against ward or precinct level maps of the election results -- I'd want to know if the ward was in a runoff and the % that voted for Chuy.

This would surely get picked up on Chicago blogs -- somebody get on it and be internet famous! :D

  • One good thing about the runoff is you can bet the streets will continue to be plowed very well the rest of the winter.

Polling place electioneering laws....

What's the distance supposed to be for electioneering during a municipal elections? I just got back from the Murphy School and there were two big guys blocking my entry into the auditorium with hand bills for Rey Colon, and when I asked them if they were following the law to the letter instead of the spirit they blew up at me.

    When Revere Park was my polling place I was regularly bombarded by individuals pushing their sample ballots on me. I was annoyed and offended by their suggestion that I take their ballot and use jt to fill in my blanks - like i can't make up my own mind. I wasn't hit with as much this time around at a different polling place but but could just be that it's a "smaller" election (less choices to strain my poor little brain *eyeroll*). I think it should be illegal for anyone to be on premises at all, it reeks of intimidation.

Dog Problem

There's a man who lives on Richmond, almost on Waveland, who has two dogs who he lets run around the neighborhood. Of course they poop all over, which is bad enough. The problem is with the snow they can't get to the grass so the sidewalk is covered with their poop. The man happened to be outside, so I asked him about picking it up. He said he wasn't going to do it and didn't care if it bothered his neighbors. What do you do about someone like that?
