  • Bob, no matter how many times you are taken to task for doing so, you still re-report shootings that are nor even local news. Are you trying to get in you last licks before EB shuts down and you are restricted to a hyperlocal arena were only those in your immediate vicinity will be exposed to your wrongheaded gibberish? Give it up. It is a lost cause.

    For what it's worth, the margaritas at Taqueria El Aguila Real (Montrose & Kedzie) are good.

    And Twisted Hippo's taproom is supposed to open in "late summer".

    Where are you near? I do have neighbor whom lets her cat out daily to roam. Pic? Also, if tip of 1 ear is clipped it means that it is a feral cat but someone has registered it. I believe 16th district has a microchip scanner.
