No one driving a Dodge Durango anywhere at 1:30 am is up to any good.

My advice for people visiting Chicago, is to keep it moving. If you have to pick someone up on the West or South side and they're not ready drive around till they're outside.

I rented a minivan last June to drive from SLC to Moab, but they were out so I got a Durango R/T AWD instead.  Would rent again.

If you have to live on the West side, try Rockford.

How horrifying. This could be anyone, anywhere, at any...

Police said gunfire erupted just after 1:30 a.m.

Oh. Nobody is in the loop at 1:30am. The loop is a business district that closes down at around 9pm.

This is a test of the a-hole earworm alert system, this is only a test.

♫  Shot on the loop, and you're to blame. You give Chicago a bad name... ♫

This concludes the test of the a-hole earworm alert system. In the event of actual a-holery you would be instructed to delete your account and die mad about it. This was only a test.

Listen to him - sitting in parked cars for any reason is a very dangerous pastime, it seems. It's one of those unwritten rules and even if it is subsequently written, it's not going to change anything.

I built and ran the Marathon Gas Station next to the Fire Academy on Jefferson for almost 17 years ... Blocks from Maxwell St Market .... Back when I first opened Mannys Deli and the tailors on Roosevelt were the only game in the hood.. well a couple other diners. I used to where a vest with two off duty co[ps after a certain time of night.

The parts of Chicago that anyone afraid of Chicago might ever find themselves in aren't like that.

Pay for your parking spot, eat your meal, and get over yourself before showing your parking voucher to the attendant. You'll be fine.

But do keep moving and avoid holding up traffic. Otherwise, yeah, you'll get a dog-cussing.

Northside too. The stats are bad everywhere. It's hard to jack a moving car, So if someone gets in your way and it's dark and not near a crosswalk.... well, better to beg forgiveness than ask permission.

"Four people were shot in the Loop overnight Monday right on Ida B Wells Drive."

Uh, yeah, that is not the Loop. Oh sure, is down town but it is not in the Loop.

Do you guys really need to tell everyone if you have herpes? My friends told me that shiat. I haven't been there in 15 years.

That movie was good up to a point but I felt it sort of fumbled the ending.   My guess is that it was a sci-fi short story first of a 'cool idea' that doesn't need closure (advantages of short story firm).  The problem comes when you have to screenplay it and provide something of a wrap-up for a movie audience.
