"Bad Landlords"

Some of you may have heard by now that the City is planning on posting a list of "Bad Landlords". Granted there may a few here and there. However, I feel that if the city post a list of "Bad Landlords then there should be a list for "Terrible Tenants" as well!

    The world is just a different place than 50 years ago. The internet has changed everything, Email has changed everything. Hackers have changed everything. Revolution is just not the same anymore with all the media stuff facebook, twitter, etc.

    Things are just different and a trillion dollars could travel round...

    Things are just different and a trillion dollars could travel round the world with the click of a mouse in a second. THINK on how fast that is! Things that were a twinkle in someones' eye can be a 3 dimensional item within hours thanks to 3d printing.

    Things are just different, faster, maybe better and maybe worse. It is hard to sort out but one must do the best they can.

    In 50 years China built itself up into a superpower. In the same 50 years the south and west sides of Chicago cratered to unlivable conditions where 1/3 of the population has fled to the suburbs. 1.2 million have left; most in minority neighborhoods because living conditions are the worst.

Jason Ervin continues to get caught up in questionable activities

A Multimillion Dollar gets a $2000 per month rent agreement for a $2k donation . No wonder these neighborhoods do not improve

  • Project North Lawndale Why are the W.Side Alderman Paid for NOTHING?

    Ervin does not campaign, would be interesting to see if he gets investigated for campaign funds that he
    doesnt spend. He simply challenges everyone who wants to run

George Badonsky died today

For those who are old enough to remember; GEORGE BADONSKY was a pioneer in Chicago restaurants.

His portfolio included many restaurants now long gone. The Brewery (burger joint on N. Broadway), Tango (sophisticated seafood restaurant on Belmont/Sheridan), Georges, La Bastile (French Bistro) ...and the fancy expensive French Restaurant on Astor street (forgot the name).

George gave gay waiters a job way before the Gay Pride Parade was even a concept. Many earned good livings, were able to be creative in...

George gave gay waiters a job way before the Gay Pride Parade was even a concept. Many earned good livings, were able to be creative in their jobs, and could live very very well because of the jobs he provided for them.

He had peers and rivals Gordon Sinclair, Rich Melnan, the Levis...it was alot of fun in those days the early 70s as Chicago restauranteurs changed what dining out meant to the public.

This is a tribute to a man who helped Chicagoans become acquainted with all kinds of dishes. He loved food and wine his whole life.
