What is this "Sad Clown" thing of which you speak?

Well, being in Chicago, you must know of the terrible sad clown infestation within the loop. Much like obesity and road construction, sad clowns have also been studied as a possible reason for sprawl. Their grease-painted smiles and tear drops and sagging bowties have driven young america to the suburbs looking for happy clowns. Can we blame this on the happy clowns? I don't think we can. They're just going where there is work. It's a vicious circle.

Have you told Duany, Cox, and Kunstler about this sprawl inducing phenomenon?;)

Now that I think about it, those sad clowns must also be the reason why I sometimes can't swim in Lake Michigan during the summer!!!!!:-s

Sad Clowns can be blamed for almost anything that goes wrong within the loop. Except the Bears. They do it to themselves.

How are we supposed to know who anybody is if we have never seen them? What kind of place is this too boot? Upscale, casual, sports, come as you are? Never been there.

It seems sort of casual. As for me, you can find my picture in another thread. I'll be wearing a modified planner uniform - khakis with a red shirt.

I'll be wearing a greenish knit sweater, blue jeans, and boots.

Not to mention that I will be the most handsome person you have ever seen!!!;)

Oh, I'll come. I'll be wearing jeans and a leather coat, and I'll be the only one there more handsome than mendelman.

Jordanb, Mendelman, Duke of Dystopia and I made the first-ever non-APA-conference-related Chicago Cyburbia Irish Beerfest last night. I can now reveal that I was the most handsome person in the room.

Ehm!!

Cardinal,

Although you are a desperately handsome man, I must honestly admit that the Duke was surely the most god-like of the four of us! ;)

But it was good to meet several of the cyburbians I don't already know.

And that Bushmill chick was HOT!!!!

What, you mean the attractive dark-haired one with the short skirt and ample cleavage? I think Jordan was the only one of us to ring her bell.

We all tried. I was just the only one that rung it. ;)

Anyhow, the joke's on her. I didn't give her my real email address.

Cubs Win !!! Cubs Win !!!

A 95 year drought on post season series wins. I don't feel sorry for the Cubs. After what they did to Fred Merkle in 1908, I think they got what they deserve.

Yes, my friends -- there is a God and he/she loves baseball.
