Speaking of race's response to letter 3, a local landscaping crew screwed up and covered the wrong persons yard with herbicide. Within a week or two, his grass was so dead, they said on the news that he can't grow grass for like 10 more years because it ruined the soil as well.

Have you been to the new state street target? We engineered that!
The new target on Division that we built opens in October.
I have not been in it yet, but it looks great from the outside. I'm so glad that you guys didn't change the original look of the building too much. It's really beautiful and I bet it was a fun challenge for your folks.

Didn't even know a new one was being built; we tend to stay pretty local in our shopping, for time-saving's sake.

The one in downtown?
The State Street Target in the Loop was a Louis Sullivan building. His designs are well known around here. Was his engineering any good?
Frank Lloyd Wright worked for him. Many of Wrights later buildings are poorly engineered. The ones which used poured concrete leak.
I am curious whether someone with a hotshot design reputation was any good "under the skin".

Got an address on Divison St- it is a long east west street

L3. Yeah. I'm tired of all the noise too, but there is really nothing you can do except move.
I lived for years under a flight approach path to O'Hare Airport. Every few minutes, day and night, one of those big birds flew directly overhead at less than 2,000 feet.
Most of the time they were landing, but sometimes when the wind is right they will use it for takeoff's, which are much louder.
Airports and airplanes have to be some of societies biggest all-around polluters.
Did you know that general aviation fuel still contains lead?

Time to put in some good-looking astroturf and bull the landscaping company.

1: Tattoos gross me out. I loathe them, would never have them, and would never want my children to. HOWEVER...I would not lose sleep at night and ruin the relationship if they got them.

3: The only thing I hate worse than neighbors is neighbors who feel they are the only person on the planet.
I know he has his right, but there is no reason to mow as the sun is going down and families are trying to get kiddoes to bed.
