    I've been several times on business.. I HATE O'hare!! I've never been into or out of that airport on time!

    But I have not been to the parts of Chicago that are making the news these days... I've mainly been restricted to business districts and my hotel. Normally I will drive the rental car around the city where I'm working just for the experience and to take pictures, but I've never had the opportunity in Chicago.

    Why do you ask?

    I was just curious. It's easy to bash major cities when one hasn't lived there.

    Of course there are plenty of parts of the city which are crime ridden. But there are also beautiful and safe residential areas. I lived in the city proper for 8 years, and our neighborhood was incredibly safe.

    Just as with any state/city with a bad reputation.. The bad news is what makes a city's reputation, wouldn't you agree? The same with people, too.. You're only as good as the last bad thing you did or screwed up... I'm not passing judgment, but rather reporting actual news stories. I would never insult FA's home city. :D He's a gun nut!

    The only reason Chicago is surpassing Detroit in those numbers is because Detroit is all murdered out.

    I am tough enough. Muggers run from me and I don't even carry a weapon.
