Flyover Englewood

At first, we were hoping it was a helicopter gunship or strafing run. This sounds almost as good:
  • The state signed a deal Wednesday with the Norfolk and Southern Railway to build the long-awaited “Englewood Flyover” that would clear up delays on the Rock Island Metra line.

    The $133 million project should begin this year and be completed in two to three years, according to the Illinois Department of Transportation.

"Flying over" sounds like a good idea. In fact it sounds so good, they ought to look into relocating every major street, highway and thoroughfare so it can pass directly over Englewood without stopping, passing Go, or collecting $200. Then they can look into doing the same thing with the west side.

But what will happen to the new "elite" CTA team that the idiot Carothers created? With a combined 10 arrests for the entire year, this "diverse" team is out to prove that you can't rob anyone on Englewoods trains! Well except on Sat-Sun cuz that's their RDO.

I think concrete walls concertina wire and landmines would be a cheaper option.
