Tracy Letts's The Minutes tells one dirty secret, then a dirtier one

1650 N. Halsted

    Tracy Letts's The Minutes tells one dirty secret, then a dirtier one
    As far as I can tell, Tracy Letts has two basic points to make in his new dark comedy The Minutes, getting its world premiere now in a compellingly strange production at Steppenwolf Theatre. One of them is fairly obvious, almost banal given the current cultural moment. The other not so much.

Appliance movers?

We need to move some appliances (stove, fridge, washer and dryer) up and down stairs within our home. Any recommendations? I couldn't tell if Dolly did appliances (looked like regular home moves and furniture) and most moving companies have a $ or 2.5 hour minimum, which I don't think it should take. The fridge is too big and the doors will have to be removed.

    Letts' electrifying 'The Minutes' gets stellar premiere at Steppenwolf
    Imagine you're an upright, upstanding, stand-up standard-bearer living in a small town in flyover country. Maybe you've got a family you want to protect. Maybe you have a cause -- civil rights, the environment, fiscal responsibility -- to advance. So you run for city council. You win. You go to work.

    The Minutes at Steppenwolf Is a Satire of Small Town Politics-and a Modern Morality Play
    Steppenwolf Theatre's world premiere of The Minutes by Tracy Letts takes place during a small town city council meeting. It's a satire of small-town politics, individual grievances and so much more. Viewed totally, it's an example of theater at its best. Entertaining, thought-provoking, puzzling, conversation-starting. Steppenwolf bills it as a comedy and the opening night...

In Tracy Letts' 'The Minutes,' a town council moves for blood

Where: Steppenwolf Theatre, 1650 N. Halsted St.

    In Tracy Letts' 'The Minutes,' a town council moves for blood
    In the moist, all-American burg of Big Cherry - the setting for the new Tracy Letts play "The Minutes" - the rambling and esoteric agenda of the town council is filled with the patter of parking and pepper jelly, softball fields and suppers at the Kiwanis.

Possible revenue stream for Chicago?

At 5:30 a.m. cars on Lake Shore Drive travel at an average of about 65 MPH, and some are going 80 MPH. I believe the speed limit is 40 MPH to protect the roads, so why not install speed cameras to enforce the limit? Or if the high rate of speed isn’t bad for the roads, raise the speed limit so it isn’t so much of a joke.

    Red light cameras would not improve safety on LSD instead it would increase rear end collisions.
    This is why we have studies. In the hopes that people bother reading them before posting uniformed opinions.
