It's a sheer and utter madhouse in Chicago right now. Well, it was and it's now dissipating, but still.
Today was the parade and rally to officially welcome home the 2013 Stanley Cup champion Blackhawks.

As someone who is only a casual runner but is currently entering organized running events, the happenings in Boston today are just horrific and terrifying and leave me wondering how and why anything like this could possibly happen.
My thoughts and prayers go out to those who lost their lives, those who were injured, and those who bore witness to the terror as well as affected friends and family.
Sick and wrong... the lot of it.
Be strong, Boston and all those affected. Just be strong.
Remember the days before music was primarily consumed in digital format? Back when you visited record stores and department stores and purchased vinyl, 8-tracks, cassettes, CDs, and mini-discs from your favorite bands?

Sometimes you just get sick of all the clutter and all the crap.
Sometimes a life change necessitates it.

I'm ready for it. You?
I only wish I could be in D.C. to gather with everyone else.

There's been a big to-do in Illinois news lately regarding reports that police officers have been allowed to be on duty while "half drunk."
According to an NBC5 Investigative Team report, this has been happening in several Chicago suburbs and it's protected, in some cases, by union contracts.
