  •  Excellent diary. I grew up on Chicago's north (0+ / 0-)

    side and was among the first graduating class of Whitney Young High School. Whitney was created as an antidote to the gang divisions in schools back then. It took kids from all over the city.

    I came back to visit a a few months ago and could barely recognize the city. No more Maxwell St. Entire neighborhoods had been leveled. But then, that had been Richard J. Daley's agenda too. "Urban Renewal."

    And even though it all went wrong I'll stand before the Lord of Song with nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah! -Leonard Cohen .................@laurenreichelt
