    If I still lived in Chicago, I would definitely make it.

    I would then tell my story of how Studs bought me a drink.  In the 70s I drove a cab in Chicago. I always listened to WFMT.  I picked up Studs and he offered to buy me a drink.  

    We went to John Barleycorn's on Lincoln.  I don't think it exists anymore.

    Of course, if I had any thing to say about it, I would have recommended a place on Division Street.  

    However, Studs did celebrate the people who tried to prevent the destruction of the Greek community with the building of UIC.

    And, you are not very far from Haymarket.

    I'll be there in spirit.

    [Medicare, and Medicaid, and Social Security] do not make us a nation of takers; they free us to take the risks that make this country great.
