Victoria is a good walking town, as I think I mentioned. wunsacon May 13, 2011 at 8:41 am >> Please chat among yourselves until Ed Harrison graciously supplies some Links later.

Nevermind. Have fun in Victoria. Jimbo May 13, 2011 at 5:27 pm Yves, heard you on the radio a couple of hours ago, top-of-the-hour CBS National News rundown. You briefly discussed how bad the parking meter securitization was for Chicago taxpayers. Comments are closed. Tip Jar Please Donate or Subscribe!
