    I have to ask you

    do you go trolling around the internet finding lit related news items twenty-four hours a day? I just read this article in the Chicago Tribune on the train at around 7:00 a.m. And then you link it up before 8:30.

    And two Chicago topics in a row. Admit it. Litkicks loves Chicago. Or are you guys just stalking me?

    Well, it’s often been suggested that I’m a bot. I cannot confirm nor deny that rumor. I was a great fan of the Bionic Woman. LitKicks does love Chicago, but we’re not stalking you — we’re just calling a lot.

    Chicago is one of my favorite cities. I was able to spend considerable time there in my previous life as an airline employee. I loved the homestyle food in many of the little mom and pop restaurants. I loved Michigan Avenue and the big three-storied Border’s. I loved all of the museums, especially The Museum of Science and Industry. Though I travel far less than I used to- I hope to return to Chicago for a visit in the next year or so.

  4. Wow! A lot of LitKicks people
    Wow! A lot of LitKicks people around Chicago, I never knew that before.
