This is not a vent board or any other kind of therapy. Before you hit the POST button, ask yourself if your contribution will add to the level of discussion going on.
Important notes on articles:
- Please do not copy entire articles into your post; rather, provide links to them.. We are now links-only for ALL Internet publications. If only a small portion of the article pertains to your post, Fair Use allows you to copy those one or two paragraphs, provided you cite the author's name and the publication for which he writes. Otherwise, put a link in the HTTP Link box.
- Even if you're copying a reference to an article, provide a link to the page from which the article came. We're trying to cut down on duplicate topics, and the posting process will check the link to your article to see if it's already being discussed on this board. At the very least, you'll save yourself some grief on the boards.
- If your first reaction after reading the article you're going to share is the author is uninformed / stupid / a jerk / all of the above, it's not worth sharing with anyone. Not every article needs to be discussed. The more the hair-pulling articles are discussed (e.g. ESPN Page 2), the more the authors will write hair-pulling articles.

Yep. Referred to it below. A guy hijacked a bus in Chicago by mkovac
and was giving rides to people up and down North Michigan Avenue. When the cops pulled him over, they arrested him but the DA did not press charges because he was a good Samaritan.
I heard this on WLS the week after the storm.
I remember waking up to two feet of fresh snow. I put on a heavy coat and decided it would be fun to walk from campus to the graveyard on ND Avenue.
It was so silent. The only sound was my labored breathing. My boots were full of snow and I found that my feet were coming out of them and I was overheating in my winter jacket.
I made my way back to Room 247 in BP and promptly gave the jacket away to one of my roommates (Bill Ryan, fellow 1970 grad like you), and never wore those boots in the snow again.
