Ever since they razed Cabrini Greens, the Northside is considered posh.

What was THAT remark all about.. it was true....Palin did not get any affirmative action, and my guess is that BOTH Obamas did.

“There is a fake Chicago?”

That would be Cleveland!

And Rahm Emmanuel charged with income tax evasion.

Doesn't count... Emanuel's a North Sider!

"For nothing in my life ever would have predicted that I would be standing here as the first African-American First Lady. . . ."

Uh, I think Sally Hemings may have beat you to that.

I was raised on the North Side of Chicago, Michelle. As I recall, it was real.

Your hubby was raised on Far East Side of Chicago — Indonesia — that's the real Muslim part of Chicago.

Point taken—JFK was bad enough, but his death put LBJ in-and that was the beginning of the end.

Yeah, that was a great series.

My dad wasn’t Italian, and was 50 lbs lighter than Tony, (and wasn’t in the mob)but otherwise, apperance and in some ways personality-wise, he was a dead ringer for Tony.

BTW—it goes without saying to others who didn’t see the episode-the neighborhood in Newark was no longer Italian—it had become “vibrant” with “urban flava”

PS to Doc—Is Little Italy in Cleveland still good? I bet it’s still in decent shape-sure hope so. I hung out there a bit 9-10 years ago—Mama Santa’s Pizza—that’s living....

One more thing—I know the place is a sewer of political sleaze—and they have what seems to be 100 square miles of some of the worst ghetto I ever hauled a$$ through with my gun on the front seat next to me, ready to go.—But Chicago is in many ways one of my favorite cities—I’ve met many great people there-the food-the bars, the cultural amenities etc. and so much more. I love NYC— and there’s no place like it-but Chicago is pretty damn close.
