    Black Panther's identity politics give the superhero genre a fresh spin
    The first black superhero in mainstream American comics, Marvel's Black Panther came with an African pedigree: in real life he's the ancestral king of a small, impoverished sub-Saharan nation that conceals a secret empire, the whole operation empowered by an asteroid from outer space.

    The quote at the end of the movie was brilliant.

    "Wakanda will no longer watch from the shadows. We cannot. We must not," T'Challa declares. "We will work to be an example of how we as brothers and sisters on this earth should treat each other. Now, more than ever, the illusions of division threaten our very existence. We all know the truth: more connects us than separates us. But in times of crisis the wise build bridges, while the foolish build barriers. We must find a way to look after one another as if we were one single tribe."

Criminal activity

Residents are not being notified of neighborhood criminal activity in a timely manner.
If residents and guests are not notified by the city or association management companies, the criminals are free to attack again until they are caught.
There must be a better notification system sent immediately once an attack is reported by a victim.

  • "he'll spend the rest of his days in jail."

    In a perfect world, not in Chicago. He'll sadly receive a slap on the wrist and be let back out sooner than you think.

  • JL

    John Adams
    Were you talking about the commanders death?
    If so your right about the In Chicago. He'll sadly receive a slap on the wrist and be let back out sooner than you think.
    The politicians say they want to something. How about bringing back the death penalty for crimes like this
    But that will never happen with all the snow flakes and politicians with no Bxxxs

Work About to Start on Columbia College’s New Student Center

Three months after the ceremonial groundbreaking, construction crews have finally been given the giddy-up to start work on Columbia College’s new student center at 754 South Wabash Avenue.

Music fans will recognize the address as the former location of Buddy Guy’s Legends — one of the few blues clubs left in a city that was once internationally famous for its blues clubs.  Legends opened at this location in 1989, and moved to 700 South Wabash two decades later.

  • Agree, sad to see them go.

  • JLM60 Visual Artist resident of Logan Square since 1986

    Sorry to see them go! Little home grown spots like this are what made the neighborhood appealing. I believe the owner cites a need for more family time as a reason, but there may be others. I wish her well and thank her for the years of providing this unique spot as well as creating jobs for local residents.Sure hope we don't get another bar.

    More (Serious) Momentum for Motor Row: Wicker Park's Fatpour Tap Works Coming to the Area
    A couple weeks back, we sort of joked about a Subway coming to Cermak as a sign of momentum for Motor Row. Well it appears there is some legit momentum if this one actually happens (via Eater): The area around McCormick Place's food and dining options are famously sparse, but that's slowly changing with new construction.

  • This is beyond cool and a great sign for the area. Motor Row is going to blow up folks.
