High Drama on Halsted Street

Today a schizo got on the el at Halsted and it took all of ten seconds for him to flip out. There was a stretch of track before the Roosevelt stop, so all the tourists in town from Delaware for the Cubs game had the hippy-hippy shakes. He accused one girl of pouring acid on him in some past life he had. Small world, a guy on the train, Mike with some long Polish last name, works with Larry Santoro. I run into him again, the Mike guy, an hour after the melodrama. The CTA security dude confronted the moon man and he calmed down top an extent. Still ranting, but at least more entertaining. I took a photo and will post it soon; for now, you get the skyline as we see it from the train as it curves towards Roosevelt Road. Bye. Wayne

I have always believed that the city/CTA provides transit cards to metldowns as a part of an inverse city beautification project. Kind of the yin to flower box yang. How else do they have seemingly endless means to ride public transportation?

You have a point. If they're on the Train, they're not on the street. I think Daley hands those out himself to all the trasients hanging around the city hall. "Here, yah bumbs, make yah selves scarce. Da tourists are comin'."

I hope Larry isn't offended that I'm making fun of his boss.

Sorry, that should be Transients.
