There's a HUGE difference between swimming pools and the middle of Lake Michigan, you simpleton.

I know if you can't swim it doesn't matter how high the water is. He should have practiced water safety. I know I sure should have.

Apparently not knowing how to swim qualifies you to be an alderman. That explains a lot.

He was a great man. The city of Blue Island will need more than one person to step up and fill the void. He gave so much.

That's real diplomatic of you. Funny how the BIIPS change their attitudes after the election.
