Illitericy In Akshun

Guess there's no spelling test on the CDOT job exam!


  1. And since the middle of September (even though this is in Lakeview and not Uptown), the electronic message board at Halsted and Belmont says "SOUTHBONUD HALSTED CLOSED SEPTEMBER 24. SEEK ALTERNET ROUTES."

    Two for one! Must be the same CDOT person responsible for the Lawrance sign!

    (Bonus for those who go that way: A cashier at the Walgreens at Halsted and Barry told me that the word is no street re-opening until Thanksgiving...but on the other hand, the city crews were actually there working on Saturday instead of taking the weekend off.)

  2. Bear, you seem to have a hard-on to complain about anything that has to do with improving basic infrastructure in this city. I suggest you look into the Luddite Community...LOL

  3. USH, where do you get the idea that I complain about anything improving basic infrastructure? It wasn't that long ago that I was writing about good ideas now in the CTA's Wilson Station plans, and Richard flew into a hissy-fit about my "pet project"! I'm damned if I do, and damned if I don't.

    On the other hand, someone akin to a skylight-crashing dinner-crasher portrayed on a DirecTV commercial likes to complain a lot on UU that s/he thinks others complain on UU...LOL
