Still shambling the streets of the city Nelson Algren defined, I am the Monster in a madhouse refined. Burma Shave.

Black Hawk Down
Day in, day out. Helicopters. Yes, there is a National Guard unit at Midway. No, I don't know why there are so many flights. Google Earth has a new feature, a sliding timeline. So I screwed around and, there it is in 2007, a helicopter on the ground just a few dozen yards from 55th & Leclaire. A lot of people have asked me if I was sure they were unmarked helicopters, not green or even news choppers. Well, they're black, baby.
