Now, of course, I like the ethnic neighborhoods, and am naturally partial to the Polish, Indian and Vietnamese. Not much to look at, ah, but the restaurants (and the stores)... Chicago has the second largest concentration of Poles after Warsaw, by the way.

You probably already know this, but don't take any of the Gary, Indiana exits and you'll be fine.

Congratulations on your new job and the impending birth of your twins. Life often has a funny way of turning out for the best. Your story is a testament to keeping your head up when things are looking bleak.

Skokie is a nice neighborhood -- I have relatives who used to live there. It has a very significant Jewish population, and the KKK caused a stir a few years back by applying for a permit to march there. IIRC, the march happened with many more counter-demonstrators than marchers, demonstrating that the best antidote to hate speech is counter-speech.

No, but in the late 70s, the KKK tried to march through Skokie, a largely Jewish suburb.

My wife went to junior high in Skokie - if she comes to the diner she can tell you all about it.

Hope you won't miss 'grilling and drinking beer before noon' days too much.

Just a reference to the high crime rate; it's close to the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore.
