"I got my start in farming on the rooftop at Uncommon Ground, the restaurant up in Edgewater," said Rosenthal.

    Yes, yes, yes! Judge Tim Evans, Attorney Kim Foxx, and Sheriff Dart -- should be removed from their positions immediately for they are putting the good people of this city at risk. Truth in sentencing is what's needed and until that happens Chicago will remain the sh!thole it has become. So very sad indeed.
