I went into Chicago today and had a marvelous time but two of my favorite stores have closed on Michigan Avenue! Talbots closed on Michigan and Superior St. and then I walked up to the American Girl store on Chicago St and it wasn't there. It is gone from that location but I found it later in Water Tower Place. I also have never in my life seen so many panhandler.. There were at least three on every block and some blocks had as many as six! They were also very aggressive!

They can spot a sucker a block away... :twisted:

You need to look into a taser. Nothing like a jolt to the neck to make a bum choke on the last word of "spare any chZZZCCCHHHGGanRRRUUUGGHH"!!

You think they're bad in Chi-town, try going to Detroit. They're really bad there.

If I was a panhandler, I would go South. Why freeze when you are begging?

You might want to check the laws in Chicago. Daley is not fond of citizens having the right to defend themselves. You can get a Taser at Midwest Gun Exchange on Grape Road.

Don't get pepper spray. It will be like putting a less effective smell on those guys.
