By the way, the oaks broke up in tiny leaves yesterday, and so now even the oaks have turned green. We're getting too much rain, so it's difficult to find a window between the storms to get to my office.
Tonight at 6:30 the MacArthur Street association is having a big event at the South Side Church (where we vote). This street is having some tough economic times (21 vacant or abandoned properties out of 140 in a five-block stretch near our home). There is a three-block stretch of the street that has eight sub-prime lending and check cashing shops quite near our home, and many large vacant commercial addresses. The street is being extended down to a big freeway, where there is a new exit being constructed so traffic can flow directly from the interstate freeway on to our little commercial street. This is disrupting the route of the bike path I ride to school. But oh well, it should help economic progress, I guess.
