Before Chicago was settled, the local population reportedly considered the area "bad medicine". At one time it was known as "Little Hell" and more recently, as Cabrini-Green. My memory will always be of the time it was necessary for me to drive along the edge of the area, and I saw an older white gentleman, in a wool business suit, with a scoped, bull-barreled Remington 700 on his shoulder, strolling away from one of the towers accompanied by two uniformed officers.

Now, this new great Chicago neighborhood is in a class by itself. I think the realtors should be subject to the same disclosure laws as when they sell the sweet innocent family the house built on a cemetery in all the horror films.
