"Not Parade Related"

And speaking of "not parade related," it seems that every year for the past 15 years or more, an "ABLA Family Reunion" is held on or near the sites of some of the more infamous projects of the Near West side immediately following the Bud Billiken parade.

While it happens to be miles away, one could make the argument that it is "parade related" because the organizers plan it that way. This year's event ended exactly the way you'd expect - in a blaze of gunfire and foot chases. But not a word in the media because no one got shot.

The ABLA family is famous for it's pacifists and peaceful message.

Just more of freebies for those on the take while the working stiffs pay not only for themselves but for the takers. And to demand that the takers pony up is called unreasonable and racist. The citizens asked for it in this state and city and the politicians gave what the citizens wanted.

The days of poverty and crime shoe boxed into one place is now remembered with fondness. Isn't America a great place. Maybe we can gather at the site of the now removed Lexington Hotel, once located at Michigan and 22nd ST., and recount the wonderful days of this city being ravished by Capone with sporadic celebratory bursts of Tommy Guns.
