Ways to make Chicago progressive and safe:

1) enforce fire codes. There's one old place, The No Exit cafe, where they put on The Andrews Sisters last year. There are NO panic bars on the doors (cost: about 160.00 times 2 doors). This place LOCKS the door, " but only during the performance..." The OTHER door was blocked entirely by a drum kit. Much like the door at Cocoanut Grove that killed 492 in 1942.

It's also too old to require sprinklers (1978), but even though there's a kitchen, I never saw ONE fire extinguisher.

To be 100% fair, it wasn't overcrowded, and no one was allowed in the aisles. But I know one usable door being locked is bad news.

2nd, please utilize the Domestic Violence laws used in Wisconsin. When women who have no reason to lie say their parter beat them up, let's stop wasting time and money, and treat it as if they never met. In WI, you have to get DV (NOT anger management) and alcohol/drug treatment based on her word for at least two years. This is what experts (such as author Lundy Bancroft of "Why does he DO that? " ) suggest MIGHT help.

No women wants to go to DV court for 6 months. It's worse than having your partner assault you, to see him in that very desolate area (where the courthouse is)...or even in court...

Having those two things dealt with would make Chicago a much better place.

Crime is terrible on the west side and south side of Chicago. The Northside of Chicago is a fabulous place to live. The polar vortex is the only thing that stops the killing in the bad areas.

"The Obama Presidential Library is a once in a lifetime opportunity that will bring tremendous cultural, economic, and educational benefits to the Southside and the entire City of Chicago for generations to come. Over the past months, the City has come together to bring the library to its rightful place in Chicago. I want to thank President Obama and the First Lady, who made the decision to bring the library home to Chicago, but this couldn't have been done without the collaborative efforts of the University of Chicago, aldermen, community members, the Chicago Park District, the Chicago Plan Commission, Senate President John Cullerton, House Speaker Mike Madigan."- Mayor Emanuel

This morning, Mayor Emanuel announced that road construction season is in full swing. Paving crews have already completed more than 65 miles of street repaving this year, and are on track to fulfill the Mayor’s commitment of paving more than 300 miles of city streets this year.
Since 2011 more than 1,000 miles of Chicago streets have been repaved – amounting to almost a quarter of the city’s streets

This afternoon the Mayor joined UI Labs Leadership to open Chicago's Digital Manufacturing and Design Innovation Institute.
The 94,000 square-foot facility is reinvigorating U.S. manufacturing industries by enabling manufacturers to harness data to make products better, faster and more cost-competitive.
Over the next three years, DMDII anticipates having a portfolio of about $100 million worth of sponsored research projects, spread out over dozens of initiatives and hundreds of participants.

Me too. Rahm is a hypocrite and we shouldn't have reelected him. He bet all of Chicago's on Springfield, and didn't even stop and think about if Sprinfield said no to pay for the pension problem. Now we owe $568 million, and he has to come up with that money himself. How sad.
