    Greetings from Chicago.

    I just received my acceptance letter from UIC, where I'll be transferring next fall.

    I wonder if I should pursue their newly established B.A. program in Urban Planning? (I've been admitted to the College of Art and Design.)

    Yea, anyways, this place seems great.

    Welcome from a fellow Chicagolander.

    If planning is what you want to do, go for the BA in planning. I wish my school had a BA in planning, instead I got to spend the bucks for a Master's.
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    The ends can justify the means.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    Hello, from Irving, TX!
    "We do not need any other Tutankhamun's tomb with all its treasures. We need context. We need understanding. We need knowledge of historical events to tie them together. We don't know much. Of course we know a lot, but it is context that's missing, not treasures." - Werner Herzog, in Archaeology, March/April 2011

    Welcome from NW Ohio. Planner-types back in the early 1800s looked at Toledo, and that excellent Maumee Bay frontage, and said, "This will be America's great city!".

    Stuff happens, though.....Toledo ambled slowly into a mid-sized city while your Chicago did, indeed, become the "great city" Toledo aspired for.

    So glad to have you here. We look forward to your posts.
