    So, poverty and one of the highest unemployment rates in the country means nothing? Instead of blaming the impoverished and desperate, so many youth resorting to crime just to eat while unemployment insurance was shutdown after only 26 weeks by a millionaires' Congress, food stamps cut to $30 mo for disabled seniors, no housing options, no jobs programs etc. I don't feel bad for anyone who does not get what is happening to so many RP families, teachers, moms & dads doing their best to survive. And what this mayor has done to the police as well? God'll get you for that

    Chicago can be a great city IF you're lucky enough to live in one of the better neighborhoods. None the less, why should ANYONE have to live in neighborhoods with open-air drug dealing/loiterers, a corrupt-do-nothing city government and on and on.

    FutureexChi, I feel your pain. I too am trying to save up enough money to leave the state of Illinois. Because I personally believe that if I live on the Gold Coast, then I still share the city with the same person who lives in Garfield Park. I cannot live in a city this polarized. Innocent and good people are suffering and relief is not in site. If Rahm Emanuel cared, he'd put an end to this B.S. This city has lost all morale. No Pride in Chicago! It took a little league baseball team to win a U.S. Championship to give this city a sign of life. Chicago is NOT healthy and until the people in leadership positions decide to lead with all good intentions, good faith and for the best interest of the citizens, Chicago will ALWAYS be a low moral city. What has this city or state done lately that would make an of us proud to claim Chicago our home? Everyone I talk to isn't happy living here.

    So I envy you and your choice move. I can't save up fast enough and I can't wait for the day when I can hop the first thing smoking out of this corrupt, gang-infested city. Chicago is a disgrace!
