  1. Focusing on the "what" and not the "how", and all related political silliness - I have to say that this is a really nice playlot.

    Clean. Bright. Colorful. Sturdy.

    Yeah. Really nice.

    From the jungle gym, there's a hanging wheel from which kids can spin while they hang.

    Saw a little girl doing her best to work loose her breakfast.

    Dizziness and nausea.

    Gotta' love being a kid.

    Anyway - props to everyone who got it done.

  2. Rumor has it that Cullerton got *all* the funding together.

    Not a penny of TIF money.

  3. Oh, the "how" of getting something this positive into the neighborhood is enough to make both Rube Goldberg and a junior CPA whince.
