Hi and welcome to Fool for the City! After a conversation with some coworkers over the weekend about my myspace blog, I decided to create a real one. I have been fascinated by reading countless others for the past few years, and thought I would give it a try myself. The focus, as I see it today will be discussions and anecdotes of things happening around my neighborhood of East Rogers Park, work neighborhood of River North, and other random stories or musings from around the marvelous city of Chicago. It's mostly just for fun, but I do enjoy writing, so I hope to keep that in practice as well as get some people thinking and commenting!
A former New Yorker-turned Tennesseean-turned Chicagoan who sometimes keeps himself so busy, he barely has a moment to sit down. Of course I sit for long enough to keep this blog. I'm a self-proclaimed news and fact junkie, and I love writing about funny, touching, amazing, annoying, crazy, or just plain boring things that I encounter in this crazy city we know as Chicago.
