HOT L BALTIMORE was the symbol of a city in trouble
The TV sitcom, Hot L Baltimore only ran for one season in 1975, but it may well have been the most accurate glimpse into the future of the American inner city.

The people of Nepal need your help, so eat some frozen yogurt

If there’s a Menchies in your area, I highly recommend the experience, at least once.  If you haven’t heard of Menchies, it’s a self-serve, frozen yogurt place with a dozen different flavors and a couple dozen different toppings.

A Jew and Mexican walk into a bar......and one of them walks out mayor of Chicago
It’s fun to think about Chicago’s two mayoral candidates being a Jew and Mexican.  It sounds like the beginning of a joke, but it isn’t.  It’s one of the great things about the City of Chicago.  It’s one of the great things about living in America.
