Taking My Show On The Road

Taking My Show On The Road
Yesterday I was a “guest writer” for The Chicago 3six5 project. In a nutshell, local authors take a turn describing a day within a year in 365 words.  The project reads like a diary of love letters to Chicago. Such a task of reporting about a day in three-hundred and sixty five words is daunting.  Especially if you like to... Read more »

Overstressed...I Made A "Mutha" Of A Promise

Overstressed...I Made A "Mutha" Of A Promise

A friend of mine asked an interesting question last week.  “Why” she asked, “has Oprah never interviewed Mayor Daley?” I found the inquiry interesting because I am always fascinated to discover a fan of The Legend.  How can anyone still be around twenty-five years later and still fall for Oprah’s phony bullshit?

Saint Gemma~ Please Pray for my Wretched Soul

Even Matilda cannot wipe the smile off of her face when she gets a "knee-mail" from Lilo.
An All Saints Pew~I refinished an old church pew donated from the Chicago Archdiocese and a bit of artistic help from eager third graders…this was the end result that fetched $750 during a live auction at the boys’ school.   While I would not proclaim myself a “holy roller”, it is definitely not a stretch...

Another Use for the Retractable Saw: Cutting the Parental Apron Strings

Before I had the chance to change the channel this afternoon, Allison Rosati mistakenly began broadcasting in my front room.   The voice reminds me of nails on a chalkboard, her perkiness gets on my last nerve, and the fact she never seems to have the same co-anchor twice makes me think others think like I. ...

20 Top Tweets from @mayoremanuel...

"Word has it the 35th has set up a miniature Tokyo and has a big Godzilla suit for me to stomp it all with. Can't fucking wait!"
Today is the day Mayor-elect Emanuel pays the piper.  A few weeks ago, he appeared on the Roe and Roeper show over on WLS AM.  After talking for a bit and answering questions posed by listeners, Roe and Roeper asked Emanuel if he followed “the fake” guy on twitter. Rahmbo laughed and asked “Are you... Read more »
