~* About This Blog*~

This Blog was created by me and for me. I dont take suggestions and I dont really care what you have to say in regards to content or design of this Blog. As far as individual posts go, I would love to hear your opinions in the comment section (especially if your opinion is radically different then mine). I try to post often, but sometimes a week will go by where I am to busy to post anything.

  My kind of Town...

I saw a traffic story on the news this week. Apparantly Chicago is number 3 on the worst traffic list behind LA and San Fran. That's right people, Chicago has worse traffic than New York! The average Chicagoen will spend 56 hours in traffic every year. LA is 94 hours and San Fran 76.
I am not surprised. We have traffic on the southbound I94 after midnight on a Tuesday. There is no good time to drive. Every day I am racing from one job to another across town, and I am stressing. To make matters even worse, every 2 main streets have major month long "construction" projects. What the fuck are they fixing anyways??? Devon, Howard, Oakton, Main, Dempster, McCormick and on and on and on and on. JUST STOP!!!!!

The traffic report prompted me to find out some other statistics about our mob run city.

Air Pollution
As of 2003, Chicago wasn't even in the top 20 worst. Few. We aren't in the top 20 best either.
Here is the report if you are interested.

Water Quality
Apparantly Cook County's water is good quality, but I couldnt find any corroborating data to that effect especially because it contains chlorine which is not good to drink. I'll stick with my Reverse Ozmosis purified water thank you very much.

Fat
Well like me you may have noticed that there appear to be obese people every where you go in Chicago. That's because there are. We are the second fattest city in the country behind Houston. This probably makes us the second fattest city on the planet. There something to be proud of. Here is the report.

Murder
As of 2003 we had the highest murder rate in the country. Another thing to be proud of.

Bottom line...Overall any city in the US is a better city to raise children in then Chicago aside from LA, Houston, or Gary.
