Apparently we cannot show any concern about this until we solve gang violence in Chicago.
'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    I'm in Chicago right now. Waiting to board a flight to Pittsburgh. Should I get gunned down I will report it immediately.

    Don't get on the loop train, a school yard, or playground... etc. You should be fine.
    Over eight hours in Chicago, people were shot on a CTA train in the Loop, on the Dan Ryan Expressway on the South Side and on a playground near a grade school in Bronzeville.

    There were six other shootings across the city during that violent stretch Thursday into early Friday, for a toll of one dead and 10 wounded.

    If these were considered terrorist attacks, Chicago would be giving ISIS a run for the money.

    Those guys need to spend some time at the range.

    O'Hare or Midway?

    Yeah....don't walk outside.
  • StevenSteven Senior Member Posts: 3,195 Senior Member
    I don't remember which terminal it was (I always flew United out of O'Hare), but there's a Manny's Deli...maybe by Southwest.

    South Side, baby!

    Took some fire but the co-pilot valiantly laid down covering fire so we could board safely.

    Do indeed to worry about AAA or SAMs on the climb out?

    Should have gone for a little walk down Cicero heading north. You could have been a statistic. Seriously.
