Quote of the Week:

"An industrial capitalist society that does not recognize ecological limits but only perpetual economic expansion and has the profit motive as driver, will eventually consume and destroy itself."

"But we will all be taken down with it."

I take bar classes at Chicago-Kent, and usually spend my breaks dodging out of a wave of smoke and taking a brisk walk to the canal and back. As I was waiting for the light to change to cross the street a tall tanned blond guy walking backwards. Looked kind of like TimN. He was about to back into a pole, so I thought I'd watch him and see if he backed into the pole and have a little chuckle.

Interestingly enough, he didn't back into the pole. Rather, he turned around and was in fact TimN, having spotted me from afar and having been walking backwards to befuddle me. Well my my, I must say that was a good bit of whimsy! So we had a charming little chat for the rest of my break and then he ran off to catch the Mega Bus to St. Louis for a wedding.

This definintely became the highlight of my day, preempting the earlier highlight though that one did say something about the kinds of neighborhoods I've been living in. I went to Potbelly for lunch and they handed me my smoked ham sandwhich in a small brown bag. This totally cleared up for me what previously had been a major point of confusion: Why do so many professionally-dressed people in downtown Chicago make trips to the liquor store in the middle of the day?
