  • Manticore, this is the last I am going to post on this thread. You are entitled to your opinion just the same as I am entitled to mine. Right now you are using the typical liberal left way of thinking. If someone posts a fact that does not go along with the ideas that you have, they are lying. Everything I have said, if you wanted to take enough time to check them out thoroughly, you would see were true. So, have a nice evening.

  • I provided a citation that proved you wrong, so suck it up, buttercup.

Strange lady lurking around

Near Long and Montrose around 630 tonight.. I just got home and was parking when my neighbor came out. We were talking on the side street and this strange lady came out from what looked like to be either our front stoop or the neighbor's walkway.

I don't usually judge people by looks so when I say strange.. I usually mean we never saw her and she doesn't belong there.. except in this situation.. because not only did she not...

Near Long and Montrose around 630 tonight.. I just got home and was parking when my neighbor came out. We were talking on the side street and this strange lady came out from what looked like to be either our front stoop or the neighbor's walkway.

I don't usually judge people by looks so when I say strange.. I usually mean we never saw her and she doesn't belong there.. except in this situation.. because not only did she not belong there but she was definitely strange. Homeless maybe? I can't say.. but chatty with herself.. big long messy dreds, a cap and some bags.. but the strangest thing was when she went up to our bushes trying to see in.. then to our locked gate on the side peeking in our yard.. then to the alley looking at our back gate and some neighbors gates/yards before coming back to our side and trying to look thru the wood slats of our fence. Is she looking for a place to sleep? Use the bathroom? Rob?

Sound familiar to anyone?

  • My guess is what you are describing is a junkie looking for someplace to fix themselves.

  • Sounds like she is for sure mentally ill and wish she could get off the streets and medicated. I highly doubt that she is a junkie trying
    to find a place to "fix" at . If that were the case she would more than likely use a washroom such as...

    Sounds like she is for sure mentally ill and wish she could get off the streets and medicated. I highly doubt that she is a junkie trying
    to find a place to "fix" at . If that were the case she would more than likely use a washroom such as
    McDonald's "junkies" don't waste time searching for a
    Spot they have that figured out. Poor lady though she sounds mentally ill. So many times real ones get overlooked and then the ones who are just lazy get all the help and are just in it to collect the check and free living. Hopefully someone will see her and maybe try and talk her into going to the hospital or maybe a trained officer for the mentally ill can try helping her....

    Hooters is for Dorks.

    I was just in the City Council Chamber today testifying on an issue, just a special use permit won't bore ya with it.

    Most of the time it is a meaningless exercise, sometimes it isn't, on rare occasion it makes a difference. Its worth a try if for nothing else to highlight the absurdity of having a hearing with nobody actually listening in any consequential manner.

    The "Chicago zoning problem" is too much weight is given to the Alderman. Way too much, it is hurting us as a city. For people who disagree with the Alderman's position it seems like a lost cause because 99% of the time it is.

    Sometimes it works for you...sometimes against you but its still wrong, its wrong to have hearings with no listening. In that way its refreshing to see an Alderman put in their place for just once.

  • However...before our case came up there was a 45th Ward zoning issue that came up just before. Do y'all know where it is?
