Anyone know of any particularly bad potholes left after the winter? If so, please specify which block or closest intersection and a brief description.

Also, is there any road that is considered especially pothole ridden to the point that you try to avoid it?

Anyone tried Webpass for internet?

I recently got something in the mail about Webpass as as ISP .... has anyone tried it? It gets great reviews on Yelp. I'd certainly like a real alternative to Comcast.

  • I think our condo association is going to consider it. We are all currently using Comcast and would love another option.

Patrick Daley Thompson's claim to have pension reform experience doubtful

change the world

PDT has touted his pension reform experience at the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District time and again to the editorial board of the Tribune, Sun Times, and at several forums and on seemingly dozens of mailers, flyers and letters since his campaign started. But is Thompson telling the truth? 
Fact: MWRD introducing pension reform January 31, 2012
Fact: MWRD Pension reform bill passed in the Illinois State Legislature on August 3, 2012 and then signed by the Governor. 
Fact: Patrick Daley Thompson elected to MWRD board November 2012.
The above facts indicate Thompson wasn't even there to be able to make this claim.

Patrick Daley Thompson's campaign fund reaches $400,000???

A of 3/26/15 Patrick Daley Thompson's A-1 financial disclosure report totaled $290,000+ from contributors giving$1,000 or more. 91% of these dollars came from businesses or addresses outside the ward boundaries. Add to this amount fundraisers, Political PAC contributions like mailers and donations from those that were under $1,000 and this total can easily soar past $400,000. Impressive or cause for concern?
