White Sox win World Series

Last year the Red Sox; this year the White Sox; next year... the Cubs will STILL be saying wait till next year; the centennial of their World Series drought left unspoiled by long-awaited triumph.

In my Chicago album, I blast the New Comiskey for its lack of soul, but the opposite is true of the world champion White Sox.

Wish I was still in the Windy City to soak up some of the celebration...

Contrarian Graffiti: Here's something you don't see scrawled on a bathroom stall every day (which I did):

Thank you, capitalist, corporate, conservative America, for a high standard of living in the world, for the best health care in the world, and for being able to sleep at night

(To which fellow graffiti-ers scrawled, by each item, respectively, "most waste," "for an elite few," "you're OK so who cares about anyone else"
