    Talked to him a couple weeks ago. He owns a bakery in Chicago and has been very busy. It is not easy owning any kind of small business in Chicago, and I do not say this lightly. The more Chicago changes , the more it stays the same.We had a long talk about this. Chicago and Cook County tax these small businesses to death. So..... other than being very busy with his bakery, and trying to keep ahead of the Cook County Bandits, he's fine.

    Damn. still no activity from Chitown. You'd think he'd at least check in occasionally.

    Checking in. Remind me not to rob a bank with you Tinker, jeez lueez why don't you post my SS# & address while you're at it. If you could delete your post with personal information I shared with you and you took out of context that would be great. I enjoy stoplights and filled potholes so I'm fine with paying "the man" my fair share. Okay, back to poking bears for me. http://www.citjourno.org/

    Peace to all.
