Question about the former Robert Taylor Homes in Chicago.

They are all gone, I know -- but that must be a lot of property. What is happening with it?

Anybody got a spare $1.2 million lying around?

7 bedrooms, 4 full baths, 2 half baths, a pool, a library . . .

Seriously, who can afford this? Might make a nice B&B, though, if zoning laws allow.


Has anybody else seen "The Way" with Martin Sheen and Emilio Estevez?

It's about a man who walks the Camino de Santiago in honor of his son, who died in an accident when he started the walk himself. I wanna walk the Camino. Has anybody done that?

Ladies and gentlemen, the immortal Hazel Dickens.

Got a great edition of "Harlan County USA".

A photo by photojournalist Earl Dotter, from the wonderful little booklet that came with the DVD. I think it says it all. And why do I get the funny feeling that this woman may be younger than she looks?

This DVD is little on the pricy side, but worth it.

A Cultural Manifesto

From a wonderful alternative newsweekly here in Indy: This vivid description of a difficult childhood ought to be read by everyone, especially those of us who were luckier than the author was.


"Pigs get fat; hogs get slaughtered."

-- columnist Oliver Thomas quoting his former law partner. The column in question:


Cab Galloway -- Reefer Man

And by the way, "Minnie the Moocher" is actually about cocaine use.

Happy Friday, Lounge.

"Why are they going after Dillinger?"

"He didn't do anything my own bank hasn't already done to me or somebody I know." -- the gist of many LTTE in newspapers in cities like Chicago, Milwaukee, and Indianapolis back in the '30's.

From "Crimewave: 18 Months of Mayhem" on H2, about the bank robbers of the '30's. Has a familiar ring to it.
