My Last Word on the Subject


Since I brilliantly misplaced the Cabrini Green housing projects in my recent New York Times op-ed piece, I have been called some form of a-hole twenty-one times now via e-mail. Fans love me! And I love them! It's a big hug-fest in Chicago! So here's my last word on it, and I will move over to haikus about kitties and puppies from now on. I said Cabrini Green was on the southside of Chicago. I believe that a vast right-wing conspiracy moved it across town to confound me and discredit my views. Big trucks. 2,000 illegal immigrants working for 1/2 minimum wage. Halliburton. That's my story. Bye, y'all.
