In any event... bring your oxygen cannisters when assaulting Players Summit. The air gets pretty rare up there at those heights.
    Being from Chicago as OMS is I can tell you that is not what he is talking about

    I figured it wasn't... but my mind did not want to go the other direction. I spent 4 years north of Chicago several centuries back.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    Chicago Mountains

    Surely these are what he was referring to.

    Just like the Front Range in Colorado, you can see these from a loonnnggg way away.

    According to the slang dictionaries "Chicago style" has particular meanings which may prompt some thought and discussion. But I'll leave it at that.

    Nice guess Griz, but that's not it. A little hint; got to get up early in the morning and head east. One day I'll get a picture. It's pretty neat.

    Oh sheesh.... now I'm stuck between the clouds/waves/billowing fog on Lake Michigan and the huge flocks of pigeons on Lake Shore Drive.

    Could be the billowing smoke stacks from the Gary Indiana steel mills! Whew they are nasty.
    Revolution is about the need to re-evolve political, economic and social justice and power back into the hands of the people, preferably through legislation and policies that make human sense. That's what revolution is about. Revolution is not about shootouts.
