Mittal-poisoned little Catanias in training

Visiting Tremont - getting your window smashed in... seems a neighborhood Hallmark greeting.

Happened to Evelyn and me too - parked 1 block from Lincoln Park for one of those delightful daytime arts festivals TWDC sponsors... spent $60 on art and $100s on insurance deductible to replace window and car stereo... that was a good 5 years ago, and the crime seems more popular than ever.

We by our art elsewhere now.

Seems like petty mafioso kid stuff.... Mittal-poisoned little Catanias in training... but the damage is done.

Perhaps if Tremont had surveillance cameras there would be less petty street crime there. Perhaps if Tremont weren't so corrupt it would have more cameras.

Disrupt IT

:)  That is one of your better lines, Norm.  I am still laughing.

One can wonder just how much

One can wonder just how much of this cash Sammy paid to his good friend Steve Finegold who was selling those fine security cameras that don't work?
