The Green Line: Part Deux


A year ago I wrote a letter to Mayor Daley, of my much loved Chicago, asking for mobile garden cars on the CTA. I’m quite sure he never read it.

If you’re from out of town and you don’t care if Chicago has garden cars on its trains or not, here’s how to go from flying into O’Hare, stopping for a quck bite at Hot Doug’s and then end up at The Hello Kitty Store. After that, you will truly understand how cool it would be to have mobile gardens. Bring dark sunglasses, the people-watching is priceless.

Forum, yo.
