I invite you to join me for the official Rogers Park screening of the critically acclaimed film Rogers Park, a movie filmed almost entirely in Rogers Park and whose director, writer and lead actors are all Rogers Park residents. I’ve partnered with the New 400 Theaters and the film’s director to offer this special screening. The screening will take place this Thursday, March 1st, 7:00 p.m., at the New 400 Theaters, 6746 N. Sheridan. Following the screening, director Kyle Henry, screenwriter Carlos Trevino and lead actress Sara Sevigny, all Rogers Park residents, will discuss the film and take your questions. Tickets are $8.50 a piece ($7.50 for students and $6.00 for senior citizens). I recommend you reserve your tickets now, as the show likely will sell out. To purchase tickets, click here: http://66725.formovietickets.com:2235/T.ASP?WCI=BT&Page=PickTickets&SHOWID=42259 I first viewed this movie last October at the Chicago International Film Festival and was blown away at how well it captured the beauty and feel of our neighborhood. The film is not about the Rogers Park community per se–instead, it focuses on two middle-aged couples facing personal crises, as long-simmering resentments rise to the surface–but our neighborhood provides an ever-present backdrop throughout all four seasons of the year. The film portrays perfectly the milieu and spirit of our community in a way that only Rogers Park residents can fully understand and appreciate. Kudos to the director, the writer and the actors. You’ll see a lot of familiar scenes in the movie. My personal favorite portrays one of the characters, an assistant to the local alderman, encouraging people to vote in the participatory budgeting election :-). The film is getting great reviews, currently 100% on Rotten Tomatoes.

    @Phill - Definition for you: "Cherry picking, suppressing evidence, or the fallacy of incomplete evidence is the act of pointing to individual cases or data that seem to confirm a particular position while ignoring a significant portion of related cases or data that may contradict that position. It is a kind of fallacy of selective attention, the most common example of which is the confirmation bias."

    As all one needs to do is look at the list of items posted on the DonorsChoose site to what you wrote, and my point is proven.

    Note, I did not engage in your brand of circular reasoning, which is yet another fallacy! LOL!!!

    You should note that I copied Ms. Salas' list from the EB post. Not cherry-picked, not fallacy, not suppressing any evidence. You made a mistake! LOL!

  • Thanks Phil. I googled OFA and Presbyterian principles. Very lefty; very smug and self satisfied as they condescend to steer, ie, community organize people to their vision of the world while berating those who don't agree with them. This is America and they're entitled to do so but we're entitled to know their agenda and goals.
    MSD HS students admitted those who don't agree with the gun control agenda were rejected by CNN.

FOIA #18-164:Sweetened Beverage Tax "total revenue collected to date" February 16, 2018

FOIA #18-164:

Sweetened Beverage Tax "total revenue collected to date from the Cook County sweetened beverage tax," February 16, 2018.

Collected: $60,719,954

Shortfall: $12,980,046

Revenue goal: $73.7 million.

https://chicago.suntimes.com/chicago-politics/report-shows-countys-revenue-flow-misses-projected-mark/

    Report shows Cook County's revenue flow misses projected mark
    Although the pop tax was only in effect for a little over three months, revenue still fell $27 million short of the Cook County's $73.7 million goal, data shows. The internal report obtained by the Sun-Times also reveals that the contentious, penny-an-ounce sweetened beverage levy wasn't the only one that didn't meet its target - four other taxes lowered Cook County's expected revenue stream, dropping it by $5.4 million.

    You may want to check Yelp for AutoTecx. I believe they've recently relocated from the 1700 block of Touhy to the 7100 block of Clark. I have an ancient car which needed work 3 or 4 times in the last 14 months, and each time I was completely satisfied with the service I received. The owner is not only polite and well-spoken, but will answer your questions and doesn't treat women like ditzes. He's a nice man who seems ethical and inspires confidence. Hourly rates are a bit lower than another popular shop in the neighborfhood, which is a plus.

Catalytic Converter Theft

The thieves are back. Stealing catalytic converters. This happened in 6700 block of Newgard so BE WARNED. Sadly the vehicle is old and the cost to replace outweighs value. Very sad and to know this happens right in front of our houses when sleeping is disconcerting.

    Some months from now, Moore is going to say "I made my decision" and you know it would be a solid YES.
    He already made up his mind, these town meetings are a form of population control designed to make you feel like you have an opinion. It's called "the illusion of choice".
