This, courtesy of the CS Gazette today:

"Anyone who doubts crime and violence are on the rise in Colorado Springs need only read The Gazette or consume other sources of news. Since late September, there has been a spate of shootings and homicides. On the worst days, this place seems like the south side of Chicago.

Recent shootings near Austin Bluffs Parkway and Barnes Road have dominated news cycles, but there have also been shootings at businesses near East Platte Avenue and, just Friday, a man was shot at the Colorado Springs Airport." 26 murders in the city so far this year. Wonder if we can get Joe Kenda back from retirement?

We moved to Oak Park in 2000. Since then, it's shifted from a sleepy, tree-lined western Chicago suburb to someplace a lot more energetic and urban - mainly because of the construction of several high-rises and multiple smaller apartment complexes downtown, but also because the businesses moving in these days seem to be catering more to young people who commute to the Loop, as opposed to the quirky, small-town vibe the older businesses had.

I think it's great, but many residents are not pleased.

When I moved to Pittsburgh 13 years ago I could rattle off the great restaurants from memory. Today there are more than I have time, appetite, or money to eat at.
