UU Turns Two
Time flies, folks. Hard to believe it has been two years today since the first posting on Uptown Update. It's been hard work, at times, to keep this blog going and luckily we have a great group of people who help bring UU to you every day. We've been through a lot (hello, subpoenas?) and have seen quite a few good changes in Uptown as a result of people speaking out on UU. Our readership continues to grow, from around 500 page hits in the beginning (which we were ecstatic about then) to close to 6,000 hits a day now, which is mind-boggling. With your help, UU can only get better. Thanks for contributing, reading, and commenting.

Now maybe you all can grow up....ReplyDelete
;-) JOKE! j/k! Happy anniversary.
Ha ha. That was exactly what I was going to say about the terrible twos, Chip. However, I have been through them enough to never speak ill of them. They always get ME in the end!!ReplyDelete
Happy Birthday Uptown Update! I hope you keep up your excellent work for the community. While Uptown is far from perfect, we can count on you to inform us of the bad and the good.ReplyDelete
happy birthday :) thank you for your commitment to uptown!ReplyDelete
Congrats. For better or worse, this blog has been important. A lot of the commentators?...not so much.ReplyDelete
Will there be a party? I want cake and ice cream.ReplyDelete
If not for this website, things would be considerably worse in this ward. No doubt.ReplyDelete
This site is a growing "balance" against all of those crazy "checks" that Shiller keeps sliding over to her clout heavy friends.
Stick it to the man, y'all!
Can I get an "amen"?
Your contribution to transparency is priceless!
You almost always impress me.
This site has created a great virtual community in only 2 short years!ReplyDelete
So, the latest crusade (FWY) wasn't victorious.....damn...
The next election MUST produce a better result!!!!!
You've done a great job, and we wish you the very best in the future.
What ever happened to those subpoenas, anyway?
happy happy UUReplyDelete
You almost always impress me.*

Thanks uptown girl, very few people understand my sense of humor on this blog...ReplyDelete
The power of the "google" brings you these birthday songs:ReplyDelete
SatanSatan Part Deux
Beatles"Ave Ceasar, Morituri te salutant" or "Hail Ceasar, we who are about to die salute you" is one of the more famous passages in historic writings.
Today using my grasp of Latin and the Guinness in my hand I say:
"Ave Uptown Update, Subpoenai te Salutant".
Which roughtly translates as
"Hail Uptown Update, we who are about to be subpoenaed salute you."
There are three songs in the above post. I either need to stop drinking or .........well that ain't gonna happen.ReplyDelete
Satan part Deux
Click on each for a total of three times and perhaps you'll end up in Kansas or Lincoln Park.
It a valued job you do and may it continue many more years. We all look forward to helping make our area safe and healthy......ReplyDelete
Jason and Uptown Girl sitting in a tree...ReplyDelete
Hey, she's a babe!!! Wayne's World, Wayne's World....ReplyDelete
Sorry, long week and I'm a little loopy...
Can't blame Jason. Chicks on bikes ... oy!ReplyDelete
Well since you seem to like the idea of "Chicks on Bikes" here is a blog to satisfy your twisted fetish.ReplyDelete
1 - You supplied that link entirely too quickly.
2 - Those are bike-bikes. Not motor-type bikes. It's all about the combustion, baby.
depends on how you define "combustion".
Hey IP. I like the bike blog. It inspired me to spice my wardrobe up a little bit.ReplyDelete
In honor of your birthday, here is my favorite web blog for you to ponder:
Wow, happy birthday! This following is a terrific accomplishment in just two short years. Thanks for bringing so much of the community together, UU!ReplyDelete
Oh, UU with your inebriated birthday celebration you missed some Uptown related news.ReplyDelete
1. Montrose Beach may be opened to surfing. I see some doctored pics of Daley, Shiller, and Holsten surfing on Lake Michigan in the future.
2. Helen Shiller questions placement of potential Olympic tennis courts.3. Sun Times does a big story about how affordable housing and TIF dollars benefited some clouted individuals. I am personally SHOCKED to find out such a thing would happen.
4. I'm sober at the moment.
5. That moment has passed.
Thanks for all U do to raise the bar on what's going on in our neighborhood and City. Now that we know all of the crap that we're paying for to line the City's
#@&! policies that are robbing us blind; it's time to remember,
"In a democracy, citizens get the government they deserve."
Too bad that we live in a republic, not a democracy, but whatever.ReplyDelete
