    God Help Us, The Air & Water Show Is Back This Weekend
    Long before so much all-too-recent nuclear sabre-rattling, the sound of jets screeching just above the city-like that endured during the annual Chicago Air & Water Show-made us pretty jumpy. To be honest, we tend to swing more toward the Sideshow Bob end of the spectrum when it comes to Air Show enthusiasm in general.

  • Yeah, I hate it too.

  • I've lived on the lakefront for 21 years and it always thrills me to hear the jets and know that we celebrate the noise, not run away screaming because they are war machines. My father was in Vietnam in the Air Force and enjoys the jets as well.

    Men Who Robbed Boystown Motorist Get Easy Sentences
    A man who was on parole for robbery when he robbed a Boystown motorist in November received a cake walk sentence of 2-years in prison this week. His co-offender received an even easier sentence: 2-years of "mental health probation."

    You can't blame lack of staff of the problem in that office has been the same for 25 years though .... It's far beyond that at this point

  • d3 NOH

    This is a very clear example of why, too:. They successful ly prosecuted it's not like they used less resources to give him a light sentence. Same problem decade after decade but now it's been happening so long it has substantially changed how the CPD operates. They have to ignore a lot of crime knowing here's no court system to back it.

Can you estimate a Uber ride?

If you took a Uber ride, can you estimate online how much it will cost to get from A to B?

  • Thank you D3. So if I go to Google maps is there a Uber link? I've never seen one.

  • d3 NOH

    Yes. If you click the little icons for driving vs walking one of them is a man with a suitcase, that's the rideshare estimate

Follow-up on Accident on 8/18

Hello,
I hope I'm not misusing this forum. On 8/18 at roughly 6:50am I was on the 148 bus when a man who was lying down on Irving Park between Clarendon and Broadway got run over by a car. I can't seem to find anything about this in any news source, and I was wondering if anyone else had information about what happened - mainly if the man survived or what condition he is in. It all happened so quickly...

Hello,
I hope I'm not misusing this forum. On 8/18 at roughly 6:50am I was on the 148 bus when a man who was lying down on Irving Park between Clarendon and Broadway got run over by a car. I can't seem to find anything about this in any news source, and I was wondering if anyone else had information about what happened - mainly if the man survived or what condition he is in. It all happened so quickly and I would love to reach out to him and follow up, as I was stuck on a moving bus when it all went down.

If anyone had any information please let me know.

If this isn't an appropriate use of the forum, I apologize. I won't be posting again, his was just the only thing I could think of using to reach out to my community.

Thank you,
RJ

    Did you actually see him get run over or did you just gather that's what happened?

    If they are unsure if it was suicide you'd never see it in the news

West Lakeview: Gun shots or fireworks?

Did anyone else hear them around 11 PM on 8/19 in West Lakeview (Belmont/Paulina)? Normally I can tell the difference between a gun shot or firework, but it was tough to tell this time around-- and they sounded really close/louder than the fireworks usually are.

  • They were fire works. They had that crackle sound at the end.
