Of course I drive with common sense, like coast to a red light or the maintain the speed limit....you know, like a jerk that people get mad at and have to rush around. Dont stop.....believen.....

I guess its all a matter of taste but at the air show in Chicago, seeing one of those is a true sight to behold. 1.2B is chump change though for Bill Gates, whose software probably caused it to crash. (Feb 23, 2008 | post #9)
Actually, they are among the safest designs ever. When one unit catches fire, its very rare it spreads to other units. The only time it spread is when the gamg members drilled holes in the walls adjoining units to run from the police. Read up on when Robert Taylor was new. The people who lived there loved it and took care of it....for a while. (Feb 14, 2008 | post #19)
I dont think those were Cops. The Cop hating know-it-alls who always find a way to lump every cop in a pile of them all being bad, corrupt and out for themselves sprang into action and looked death in the face and saved those strangers........ hahahahahh....riii ggthtt Nice Job Guys (Feb 14, 2008 | post #16)
I find it scary that kids are eating their lunch at 9:00 am. Especially when I see most of the kids interviewed are from a school that my children will be soon attending. Hopefully things will change in the up coming years but most likely not since the over crowding is also apparent in the grammer school my son is now attending. The lunch room is now a classroom and the auditorium serves as a "multi purpose room, lunchroom and auditorium." New school need to be built. People need to worry about overcrowding or our childrens education will suffer more than it is already. Its hard enough being a kid. (Feb 10, 2008 | post #22)

Im surprised they published this, since it was about something good. (Jan 17, 2008 | post #14)
I somewhat agree, though I am sorry for the pet owner, the Trib's selection of articles of late has been rather bubble gummish. But not to worry! The sharp intel unit and hard working tact team that good ole former police **** -tater Frank Comenski put in place will get right on the case. Oh wait, he didnt so they wont (Jan 17, 2008 | post #17)
What you idiots fail to realize is the Tribune could be filled front to back with articles of what police do right. It is amazing how clouded a regular citizen's viewpoint gets when they dont realize how stupid they are being. The police see it everyday. All day. Are cops rude? Sure. But that problem grows from when a police officer is new. You see, before a cop becomes a bit jaded and hard edged, they are normally like you, the sheepole who buy into all the crap the press spoon feeds you while you sit in your cozy office with your Dilbert cartoons on your cubicle. Then the new cop experiences call after call after call of just silly stupid stuff. And call after call of people at their worst. Child abuse, muggings, shootings, domestic abuse, robbery, burglary and all the other stuff. 1 out of say every 1000 crimes gets reported in the papers. It starts to change your perspective and tactics. For example: A Traffic accident where the person was too busy talking on the cell phone to pay attention to driving wipes out some poor guys car. Now the police are there trying to clean the mess up and Mr. Trib reader is busy talking to the insurance company. The cop asks the guy to please hang up the the phone so the crash can be attended to. Of course he does not. A young cop will probably wait, a seasoned cop will say "Get the ph-uck off the phone." He does this in order to speed the process since being direct is often the only way though to most of you knuckleheads. What you do not realize is it is for your own good. Most people do not have the common sense to avoid trouble so it is up to the police to help. Problem is most people, as adults, have a hard time being told in a stern voice what to do. This comes across as rude and unprofessional, when more likely it is just a safety and time saving measure since the officer has learned that being polite just does not work, in most cases. Bad cops out there? Sure. Rude cops out there? Lots. Stupid citizens? Most. Just how it is. And the next time one of you asks a cop why he lets his car idle, or parks close to the doors at a home depot, think about this: How far would you want him to run if the call came out that someone was mugging your mom, or breaking into your house? Thought so. (Jan 16, 2008 | post #19)
