I have not abandoned the blogging, but have been very busy with the volunteering and work. What a change from the bad old times at the previous agencia. This one is enjoyable and entertaining (often) and ultimately useful to me because I can be useful to it in its purpose.
I do have ideas and pictures and things, I just need the time and memory to put them here.
From section 18 (!) of the Chicago Tribune of November 27, 1988 comes a piece about the gentrification running seniors on fixed incomes out of town. There were two photographs of local political persons making reflections on the phenomenon:
A particularly unfortunate double meaning of the word “cheap” here makes it look like the state representative doesn’t give a **** about seniors and wants them warehoused somewhere. Note that they misspelled her name. It’s Judith Baar Topinka.
The country treasurer looks like he’s never seen a camera before! “You mean you can make that little thing paint a portrait of me? Shocking!”
Much to my surprize, a 10 ream paper box filled with photographs going back to the late 1800s was discovered. This kept everyone busy for some time gawking over them. I admit I did other things, including playing various games on my PC.
Also, I found some antient magazines filled with cigaret ads. I will present some of those later tonight or tomorrow. Apologies for the lack of content today.
