Quick Hits

(posting early to avoid the rush. What rush? Don't ask us, we just know if you start early, you avoid it.)
  • Cubs for sale? Not likely. It's a cash cow for the Tribune company and according to the statistics, newspapers are bleeding money nationwide. Why sell your most profitable entity? But if they were for sale, Mark Cuban is interested.
  • The mayor wants to provide Internet access to everyone. For free. And he wants private industry to pay for it. Call us cynical, but how does someone expect the private sector to pay for something this huge and not give them some shot at profit? Someone better look at any subcontractors involved with this, because either the private sector is going to get hosed or the taxpayers are ... again.
  • A Libertyville teen dies while drag racing his brother. Though the dead teen collided with at least two other cars on the way to his own demise, no one else was seriously injured by his stupidity. A future Darwin Award nominee we are sure.
  • One of the original "teflon" politicians passed on this weekend. In addition to all of the political posts he held, George Dunne ran Near North Insurance, which collapsed a few years ago following Michael Segal's conviction of looting $30 million, emerged unscathed from a racetrack buying scandal that sent Governor Otto Kerner to prison, dumped Jane Byrne from the County Committee (triggering her run for mayor) and was among the first to back Harold Washington to save the Machine.

since the police dept wants to blow all of the taxpayers money, are they gonna buy all of the low income chicago residents new gateway computers to they can get free access to the internet. i thought that the public library's gave internet access to anyone with a library card...oh yeah, the animal can't access internet porn at the library, silly me what was i thinking. maybe we should buy them all fast cars so they can race each other and cull the herd a few at a time.

Don't forget about the bank he "invested in" which recieves all the county bond money and then earns intrest on it while only returning 90%. 10% service fee for handling the cash and no intrest money back to crook county. LOL Fuck you property tax payers!

If you have a library card, you can access the internet at any library.

If you're an adult, you can surf the net for porn as well @ the library.

Plenty of creeps at Harold Washington library viewing porn because security has to walk around making sure underage kids aren't viewing porn.

I’ve noticed something particularly funny about the comments and responses posted on this blog:

1. No one works in districts like 016, 022, 020, 024, 018 etc. Everyone works the ghetto, and has for 30 plus years.

2. There are no mid-timers on this job. Everyone is either a “2 year” wonder or a grizzled veteran of 22 or 25 years (or more).

3. There is more than enough bitterness out there to drive this department to the 22nd Century.

4. If you get promoted, you either suck cock, lick slit, know someone or are the progeny of a former boss.

5. The Northside sucks, the Southside sucks, the Cubs suck, Sox fans are bandwagon jumpers, etc.

6. Everyone decries the inhumane way we talk to each other here with one hand, but with the other they are busy jacking off thinking how they can say something witty and caustic to someone else.

7. Everyone is a grammar whiz. They correct each other with wild abandon, but their posts are usually riddled with the same mistakes that they are trying to correct.

8. If you call someone on a obvious falsehood or catch them in a lie, their response is that they worked the ghetto for 50 years and they know who is who and what is what; they are the working police and you must work at 35th Street since you obviously cannot see the “wisdom” that they are spewing.

9. Each poster thinks that they know the identity of anyone who it talking about someone else. “We know who you are” or “I know who you are” , etc. Blah Blah Blah. You are usually wrong. There are many bitter and unhappy people that you work with that given the cover of anonymity will rake you over the coals and not think twice about it. The people who you think write here are not the bitter people you know. Usually THOSE people will be bitter to your face and not behind your back.

10. Many people claim to be supervisors who obviously are not. It doesn’t make your argument any more secure to state that you are a supervisor. Even PPO’s know that some supervisors don’t know anything and some Beat car coppers are the smartest people on this job. Your rank has no bearing on your ability to do this job.

11. There is no unanimity about ANYONE on this job. Phil Cline is either the second coming or he is the antichrist. Starks is either clueless or he is actively trying to ruin the department. Lemmer in 023 is either a cock or he is a dick (well, maybe there is some consensus of opinion there). But someone who is liked by some, is reviled by another. OMG! We are human after all.


I love this site because it allows us to vent to like minded individuals. We don’t agree and that is not a horrible thing. If we were all in one accord, life would be boring.

So keep it up guys and dolls. I am having fun reading this stuff. The humor is awesome.
