"This Fog is Getting Thicker."

"And Leon is getting laaaaarger!"

Still one of the funniest movies of all time. But anyway - the CTA is buying buses with larger seats to accommodate the ... um ... larger backsides of it's riders. See coverage at Channel 5, Channel 7 and the Tribune. Here's our question though. They are only expanding the seats from 17.5 inches to 18 inches. If the average American is 25 pounds heavier than in the 60's, what is to be gained by a half an inch?

Yeah, yeah, ask an Irish woman. We've heard those ones before.

WOW, ½ an inch huh? I know next time I ride the bus I'll feel much better having all that room. Wait, if I ride for free I'm supposed to stand if there are no seats. Damn!

Great to see the FOP go around Daley on Retiree Concealed Carry (H.R. 218).

The unanswered question is WHY did the CPD authorize about a dozen retirees to qualify and then the whole process came to a screeching halt?

I understand that those dozen CPD retirees have all since been qualified for nationwide concealed carry by ILETSB. Why the double standard?

Sorry.. I pasted this from the above thread to get the point across..

SCC.. How about a new thread which asks how many people have had their paychecks FUCKED UP by the finance division??

It seems that this is happening time after time after time.. WHEN ARE THEY GOING TO STRAIGHTEN THIS SHIT OUT? We have several people who have realized that their auto loans have not had any deductions for the past few months. NOW FINANCE HAS TAKEN A LUMP SUM OUT OF THEIR CHECKS ON THE 16th.. Some people had over $1000.00 taken out of their checks and they are left WITH SHIT to buy Christmas gift for their kids!

You bust your ass, put your life on the line in this shit city and this is how they take care of you.. THE FUCKS…

There should be a NO CONFIDENCE VOTE on Director of Finance FRANK WILSON.. an oblivious Democrat Political CUNT who CAN NOT do his job properly. You have a major screw-up 1 time with a new payroll system that’s understandable.. But 2, 3, 4, 5 times . . . WHEN’S THIS GOING TO END????
