i live in chicago. the largest city left in the rust belt. it's a good time for new art, new ideas. nuevo surf music on the rise. even though our politcal future is bleak thanks to an obscenely obstructionist tea-party wind blowing, i take comfort in sturdy airliners, quirky design, food cooked well, big art & itchy scratchy music.
