M&J Fdtn. Gave and Gave at Christmas Time

TBT - MJ and I take a photo at the JUMP offices where we recorded his narration track for a video I produced and directed for the M&J Foundation (M&J stood for Michael & Juanita Jordan Charitable Foundation). MJ had a much bigger smile when he took a photo with my son Matt and his buddy Brett Witek, but they didn't make him work like I did.

    T is the season to be in politics! This statewide primary race is considered to be one of the busiest and "on the grind" hustles we've seen in a long time.

Thinking about Moving to 60616

Hi friends...we are thinking about moving from over the river to south of the river....seems like a great - upcoming area. A new Marriott Marquis just went up, a Hilton is in process - and I hope that a grocery, walgreens, etc. are on their way.

Any hints or pointers those of you who live in the area can offer. We don't have a car....so, public transit, walking are our primary modes of getting around....

  • Judy Happy Chicago Resident!

    Thank you all for your thoughtful responses....60616 here we come!

  • Hi Judy, my wife and I live in 60605 and work in 60616 often. We would be happy to help you find the right place to live. Please shoot me an email at marcus@marlenproperties.com so that we can help you accomplish your goal :)

Racial Wafts

There are no less than 8 mentions of an attack by 4 black youth on 1 white man on south Michigan Monday night.
Yes, a problem exists. Always has.
But I don't recall Lequan McDonald getting this much press when he was murdered (prior to video release).
Every single news outlet posted their take, and the underlying theme in most is "Oh, no. Not in my playground. Call the National Guard." Please.

Happy Thanksgiving.
