Heavy on Protest ... Light on Action

As this weekend's anti-violence protest came and went without much of a whimper, I couldn't help but be shocked by some of the talking points and reports coming out of the event.

Among the many "demands" I saw listed: More Economic Development.

"Wait", I thought to myself, "more economic development???"

As this weekend's anti-violence protest came and went without much of a whimper, I couldn't help but be shocked by some of the talking points and reports coming out of the event.

Among the many "demands" I saw listed: More Economic Development.

"Wait", I thought to myself, "more economic development???"

Correct me if I'm wrong, but these are the same South Side communities currently fighting against the Obama center, correct? These are the same South Side communities who protested the opening of the new Mariano's, correct? These are the same South Side communities that -- anytime anyone comes along and proposes new development -- they launch into a tirade about "gentrification", "getting pushed out", etc, etc, right?

I don't get ... are they trying to be "ironic" with these demands given most of the pushback for new development(s) comes from within these communities themselves?

Plumber Reccomendations

Hi neighbors! Our sink in our Kenwood condo has become separated from the counter top and now we have a bit of a leak under the sink as well. We are looking for a good plumber that services the area. I know I could call roto-rooter, but I always find them impersonal and very expensive. I think the leak is causing a severe buckling in our kitchen laminate floors as well, so flooring professional recommendations are also appreciated!!!
