    BGA, those signs don’t mention the offending organizations. The signs simply signal to neighbors and passerby that we welcome diversity—they inflame or incite no more than do yard signs for political candidates.

  • Thank you! Well said Sandy! And honestly in today's turbulent times, reminding people is not a bad thing.

    God Help Us, The Air & Water Show Is Back This Weekend
    Long before so much all-too-recent nuclear sabre-rattling, the sound of jets screeching just above the city-like that endured during the annual Chicago Air & Water Show-made us pretty jumpy. To be honest, we tend to swing more toward the Sideshow Bob end of the spectrum when it comes to Air Show enthusiasm in general.
    http://chicagoist.com

  • I've lived on the lakefront for 21 years and it always thrills me to hear the jets and know that we celebrate the noise, not run away screaming because they are war machines. My father was in Vietnam in the Air Force and enjoys the jets as well.

    I remember being in the Chipotle near State and Division one August when they had the front windows rolled away for the breezes. It was the first rehearsal day for the show (so Thursday), and the first plane went over, with a searing roar, and several people screamed and a few started to head for the floor under their tables until they realized what it was. In general, it seemed the phenomenon was not appreciated. I don't like air shows because of the disaster potential, and there have been disasters elsewhere. I hope there will never be one here. Secondarily, what other sport has a play-by-play announcer announcing to the on-site crowd? Dog shows, maybe. I don't like that. But the other reason is the important one why I don't like air shows.

    This is a very clear example of why, too:. They successful ly prosecuted it's not like they used less resources to give him a light sentence. Same problem decade after decade but now it's been happening so long it has substantially changed how the CPD operates. They have to ignore a lot of crime knowing here's no court system to back it.
