Another attempt to prevent Darwin from winning



OK, the warning bells are ringing, the gates are down and the lights are flashing.  Should be enough, right?  But no, we also have barriers that rise out of the pavement.  This allows the truly stupid to pass their genes on to the next generation.

Humans.  We are the only species that prevents evolution from doing its job.

Veterans Day 2015



























In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

Emergency on the River

The Christopher Wheatley















xFirst a Coast Guard boat roared by with sirens blasting (which I did not photograph), then a fire boat, and then a police boat. Something was happening on the Chicago River.  Alas, we were going the other way.

"Going out in style"









 I remember, a LONG time ago, when these were the standard ambulances in Chicago.  Someone asked then Fire Commissioner Robert Quinn about the need for Caddy ambulances and he said, "People want to go out in style".
