WestSideMillenial, I'm sure by now you know my position. I've worked in social work for a long time. So the one area I would start with is to try to cut back on criminal behaviors by replacing the gang family with a positive family, if their own family is not dependable to provide the appropriate guidance.

This would be in the form of mentors, martial arts programs, etc.

And if my dream came true. A less criminally based area becomes more attractive to outsiders.

And that brings opportunities for people to feel safe and spend money on stores and restaurants there.

But I'm not the Economics major. So leave the martial arts instructuon piece to people like me!

Merry Christmas, again, my friend.

Step one get rid of the Democrats
Step two get rid of the gangs
Step three get rid of the anti-civilation culture that despises education, laws, personal improvement and pretty much anything that leads to being a successful productive member of society.

Agree! But sadly none of those will ever go away from here which is why this city is forever doomed.

Bring back the good paying manufacturing jobs that only called for a high school diploma.

The end.

More truth than poetry in that statement, that's for sure.

Oh, yeah, find a way to make the Baby Daddies stay with their WAP and support their offspring. I guess that's a better suggestion than what Ripley proposed in "Aliens", even if it's less sure.

Daaaannnggg, is Chicago really that bad?

Asking honestly, as I've only driven by it on 80.
