  • d3 NOH

    if you buy 6 macarons at vanille it costs more than buying six individually... Because notonly do they not give you a quantity discount (...those little things are $2/ea still) they charge you for that pretty box.

  • RaleighsMa Not fauxraged but may contain typos.

    LOVE Vanille, especially the mini cakes for parties and the macarons.

    I gave a box of macarons to my nephews who divvied them out to their friends when they got home but warned them that they were "veeeery rare and veeeery valuable." Very cute.

Chicago's "Smart Lighting Project" is NOT smart!

Blinding LED streetlights have failed in NYC and LA, but Chicago keeps plodding ahead with first generation lighting. If you don't want your neighborhood to look like Fulton Market, call your Alderman and tell them you want warm PC Amber LED's in Chicago not "night game" lighting on your residential street. https://www.facebook.com/groups/155084901640186/

    This is a prime example of how to not do campaigning.

    All Vicki ever does is to assume everyone shares her point of view so she tries to speak for everyone. Once that fails, she starts name calling and labelling, telling everyone that she’s right and everyone is wrong, that she wants to have intelligent conversations while everyone else is insensitive, that she’s a good citizen while everyone else is a troll, that her HPS lights are beautiful and everyone’s LEDs make the city look like Walmart parking lots and mosques. Once that fails, she resorts to personal attacks.

    All quality traits for someone that is trying to get people to support their cause.

Car key found

I found a Kia car key on Grace, just west of Janssen yesterday. PM me to identify.

  • Hi Cazh - I lost a key in that area over the weekend, but it's a Subaru car key. Just make sure the one you found is definitely a Kia? Mine was on a heart shaped key ring with a gold and silver key too, but it's possible that the car key may no longer be attached to the key ring. Thanks for double checking the one you have!

  • Hi Ashbash1013. Sorry to say the key has Kia written on it.
    Hope you’re successful in your search.

    Chicago Nonprofit InjusticeWatch Digs Into Judicial Candidates
    You're standing in the voting booth, staring down at a long list of people running for judicial positions, and you have no idea which candidates you should vote for. Now there's help: InjusticeWatch, a Chicago-based non-partisan, not-for-profit journalism organization, is publishing a series of investigations on local judicial candidates up for election in Illinois' March 20th primary.

  • House-Frau Homemaker, mom, animal lover

    As long as Judge Carol Howard is booted I will be happy. She’s the idiot who gave the woman who tossed her just-born baby out of a 4th story window “house arrest”. She is a joke and a travesty to the criminal justice system.

    Maybe there should be an explicit campaign to educate voters on her.

Judges

Is there an organization or an individual(s) that compile a list of judges lenient or easy on crime that should not be retained or voted for? In view of so much crime committed by previous offenders a list like this would be very much appreciated by voters when heading to the polls.
