@ossobuco,
I think you're right. Whatever the year, old Speck was eventually arrested.

And who can forget the guy who killed his victims, chopped the bodies up, and buried some of the remains in the wall and then ate the rest?

@Miller,
Chicago is bad, but not the worst. Considering it has one of the largest populations of US cities, your fear-mongering is uncalled for.

No ****! "South Chicago is part of the SouthSide." You must be some kind of genius to figure out that one!



I grew up on the South Side, you didn't.

Miller, lest we forget, is the Queen of the South Side. Too bad she never ventured north of Madison St.

Then, who can forget the famous Leopold and Loeb murder by two students from the University Chicago ( Hyde Park )?

Well I'll hope for the best. At least I have a good set of legs to maybe outrun the baddies. I always carry a tactical folding knife if things get very bad. It can't be worse than Iraq, but then again I had buddies that got my back.
The worst think that can happen is the bystander effect, and I hope that doesn't happen if I do get into a hassle.

Only you could think that Boston is on the north side of Chicago.

If you haven't already checked out the CTA site, they have a series of how-to guides that are well worth perusing. Now that the trains have transitioned exclusively to fare cards (buses take both fare cards and cash -- exact fare only, no change given), it pays to know how to use those cards before taking a trip on public transit.

I'm back in my own backyard for now.
It was a good experience overall. The cta bus's were unreliable at peak hours, getting as late as 10 minutes. During the first day of work I accidentally boarded the pink line from the clark/loop and accidentally ended up in Pilsen.
But the best part of the beach near lakeshore. The sand was perfect, and the city was very dog friendly. My dog enjoyed it in montrose dog beach, I think more than me.

Ten minutes late means that it was on time.

There are some good restaurants in Pilsen.

Glad you and your dog had a positive experience. Come back to visit any time.

In order to receive an appoinment at Harvard Medical School , I had to leave Chicago and move to Boston, which has probably the most stimulating scientific research in the entire USA, if not the world.

While I miss Chicago, at times, I love Boston and everything it has given me.


Nobody ******* cares.

And doctors who don't operate on black people aren't as interesting as they think they are. ****, that goes for all doctors.

Anyway, mighty fine town Chicago is. Everywhere is safe during the daytime. And it's doubtful you'd ever find reason to visit the places that are risky at night.

@Gargamel,
I heard that Sarajevo wasn't a pleasant place at daytime during much of the mid1990's. Wink

Well, it was easier to tell which direction the sniper fire was coming from during the day.

@Rorschach,
Ah, I feel you. The concept of CTA service for a visitor (I was once upon a time), is, well how shall I put it?
