Man Arrested At Hamilton Looks Worse Because Of Lawyer

Man Arrested At Hamilton Looks Worse Because Of Lawyer
I get why attorneys for famous people give press conferences.  Their clients have a lot to lose if they are arrested and since people know about them, they are more likely to remember the particulars of the press conference rant when it gets to trial.  It doesn’t always work (see: Blagojevich, Rod), but it makes...

When Is The Cook County Property Tax Bubble Going To Burst?

When Is The Cook County Property Tax Bubble Going To Burst?
I remember the “good old days” 15 years ago, when you could buy a house and then sell it a year or two later for 30% more than you bought it for. I remember looking for houses with my wife and thinking that I couldn’t believe the prices people are asking for dumps.  We really... Read more »

What You Missed At Game 7 Of The World Series
  I rolled the dice and headed to Cleveland on Wednesday morning last week without a ticket.  I had a place to stay and friends who were going to be there so it was a good start.  I lucked out as a friend who works in sports marketing was able to get me a ticket... Read more »

How Was I Ever A Bobby Knight Fan?

How Was I Ever A Bobby Knight Fan?
Growing up I was a huge sports fan.  I had no parental guidance on sports because they weren’t in to it at all or athletic.  My best friend had two very sporty parents and they both went to Indiana University. So I became a Hoosier fan through them and as a result, a big Bobby... Read more »
