Chicago, Illinois

In the first two months of 2013, 57 people have been shot and killed in the South Side of Chicago alone. Tragically, the latest victim was a 6 month old baby girl.

Earlier this week, also in Illinois, in a place called Waterloo, a 43 year old golfer was instantly swallowed up by a sinkhole 18 feet deep. Fortunately, and unlike the unfortunate man who recently met the same fate and disappeared in his bed in Florida, the golfer survived with just a dislocated shoulder.

Then last week I read about the massive snow dump that closed Chicago’s O’Hare airport. That’s the one I’ll be flying into in two weeks time.

This all makes excellent reading for your stress levels when you are flying into the city in two week’s time. Did I say TWO WEEK’S TIME?

I think I need to make an appointment at the GP for some valium. Sadly, I am not joking.

Looks pretty, if a bit wonky, but what lies beneath?
