Hello DU!

Having had 10 posts, an automated inbox message suggested we newbies introduce ourselves.

So hello!

As you can see, my bride and I reside in Chicago and aside from the snow in the winter (which was very little this year) we absolutely love it! The decision to join was not planned. A few days ago when I clicked to read replies on an interesting thread, there were soooo many ads, I could barely get to the comments without acting like Flash with my fingers. So, necessity brought me here.

This country is under siege from within and this site has given me understanding and a glass full scenario with so many intelligent, scientifically driven posts. (love, love love the animals posts as well! )

I wish more politicians would listen to people like Jane Goodall who are telling us how to get back to balance with our Mother Earth as we take and take and not replenish. Only an evil person would allow the hunting of bear cubs and their hibernating moms, remember Palins' video of her shooting wolves from planes? My disgust has increased under this dangerous nincompoop some call the president.

So, thank all of you who participate on DU and offer so many sage and empathetic posts, I can not even begin to tell you how much it is appreciated.

6. Howdy Doody, North Shore

Do they still play the blues in Chicago
When baseball season rolls around?
When the snow melts away
Do the Cubbies still play
In their ivy covered burial ground?
(Steve Goodman "A Dying Cub Fans Last Request"

15. Welcome North Shore, animal/nature lover here.

I visited Chicago one summer 10-12 years ago, stayed near the main downtown sites and was very impressed; wish we'd had more time esp. to see the Chicago Art Institute.

Nice town, (we even did the silly but interesting 'Gangster' trolley tour).

Visit us again soon, with Ms. Lightfoot as our mayor, everything is better. The Gov. is growing on me.

17. Welcome to DU...

Looks like we're homies!!

...except I'm on the near south side in Pilsen, so I'm a White Sox fan.

This place has kept me relatively sane since 2004.
