Leslie's Omnibus


Found on a stroll down Michigan Avenue last Saturday:

More autumn pretties from the Lurie Garden:


When parents not only show an interest in their kids, but a commitment to their education, the school system really should pay attention:
Chicago Public Schools agreed Monday to lease a field house next to Whittier Elementary School to a community group for $1 a year and build a library inside the school.

The action comes as a group of Pilsen parents continued a sit-in to gain control of the building and convert it into a library to prevent it from being razed.
The CPS turned off the heat and the water in the building during night time temperature drops down into the 30's and 40's. The parents hung in there anyway, and the school board was forced to turn them both back on.

I'm 100% in support of these parents. God bless 'em every one for not backing down.

Bomba the Jungle Boy bit the big one? Oh, no! He was a Sunday afternoon favorite of mine growing up!


Sweet Potato Soup with Maple and Bacon? That sounds an awful lot like yummy, yummy comfort food to me!

Just how out of sync with the working public are government employee benefits? Go here to find out. Guaranteed to make your head explode.
