    I lived down south a stretch, Chicago and Uptown are in a vein or two the most northenly of southern places.

    "Pan American"

    I have heard your stories about your fast trains

    But now I'll tell you about one all the southern folks have seen

    She's the beauty of the southlands listen to that whistle scream

    It's that Pan American on her way to New Or-leans.

  • ATID you removed the water bowls, you no one else a month or so ago. So, I can only assume you did the same thing about a spotlight.

Noise Walls Blocking Bridgeport From Stevenson Proposed, But Neighbors Wary

“I love this community, but I don’t want a big wall,” said Ron Szczesniak, who owns Windy City Silkscreening with his wife at 2715 S. Archer Ave., where, from the roof, you can seen one of the best views of the city skyline.

    Noise Walls Blocking Bridgeport From Stevenson Proposed, But Neighbors Wary
    BRIDGEPORT - The Illinois Department of Transportation wants to build 10-foot noise walls along the Stevenson Expressway, but residents are concerned the project will ruin Bridgeport's scenic views and make the neighborhood feel like a cave.

  • There is more noise from the planes going to Midway now than there is from I55. How about you take care of that.

    5 Killed, 40 Wounded In Weekend Shootings
    A city employee caught in gang crossfire was among five people killed and 40 more wounded in shootings across Chicago between Friday afternoon and Monday morning. Chicago Police issued a statement Sunday in the middle of one of the first consistently warm weekends of the spring, as intensified city gun violence typically accompanies rising temperatures.

  • The "reputed" gang member in the SWAT team incident yesterday in Park Forest where two FBI agents were wounded had a record a mile long. Just 50 and he was sentenced to 20 years for murder in 1984. Also convicted of drug possession and ILLEGAL POSSESION OF FIREARMS which earned him a 17 year sentence in 2008. 17 plus 2008 =2025 and he should still be in prison. While I celebrate no one's death, at least he won't be causing us any further problems.

  • d3 NOH

    They told us they had this list 4 years ago. Not progress progress would be the media actually following up on that from then and telling us whom is alive or whom is still on that list. A new list and new name for same existing program is just another distraction that's taking advantage of everyone.

Tickets for Crap Beer Day? You betcha!

Why am I spilling my secret shame? To show that there should be no shame in attending Sunday's 2nd Annual Crap Beer Day at Dusek's Thalia Hall, 1807 S. Allport Street. Besides I've got a pair of tickets to give away.

    Tickets for Crap Beer Day? You Betcha!
    All of you fans of the craft (beer, that is), it is time to own up. There is a cheap, macro brewed crap beer that still has your heart. Maybe it's the beer your Dad let you sip as a teenager so you would be more cool about turning legal.

  • We are still awaiting the ACLU to inform the police on how to fight this crime wave. After their ill conceived legislation, which Kwame Raoul sponsored, crime is out of control. Now they need to come up with a strategy to stop the killings.
