Enterprise Bridge

A new low in divorce fallout

Okay, we've all heard plenty of stories about idiot parents treating their kids like shit following a divorce. There's a story in the Tribune that crowns a new biggest loser. A couple back home in Northbrook split up three years ago. The mother's new husband wants to have her son circumcised, against his and his father's will. Fortunately, the court told her to stuff it.

There's a raft of jokes I could make here, but they all come across as cheap and sick when their object is 9 year old boy.
Enterprise Bridge


We're losing another landmark building. The Dexter Building was designed by Dankmar Adler and Louis Sullivan and built in 1887. It's now on fire. The Chicago Fire Department has just pulled its people out, which indicates it's in danger of collapsing. Earlier this year, the Pilgrim Baptist Church burned, another Adler and Sullivan design.
