Fence jumping commuters risking their lives (Chicago Tribune)
Tom Donegan, who manages emergency preparedness training in Metra's safety
department, knew it was going to be tough to change what's become a dangerous
commuter practice at the 80th Avenue train station in Tinley Park, but he
started trying at about 5:30 a.m. on a recent day.

Bait Shop open for business on Broadway (Capitol hill seattle)
The most ubiquitous and classic of all Pacific Northwest fishing experiences
is rising at some ungodly hour to board a 40-foot diesel guzzler and filling
your stomach with cheap beer and Bromine to prepare for the high-sea
adventures to come. We're not sure how much of this experience **Linda
Derschang** has planned into her new Broadway bar and restaurant, **Bait
Shop**, but hopefully you'll be able to find a cold can of Rainier if not a
school of coho.
The official opening of the new space is Monday -- but we can tell you the
bite will be on this Sunday night. Tight lines.
* * *
Bait Shop joins a fleet of Derschang joints that have defined much of the
culture of Capitol Hill's food and drink. **Smith**, **Oddfellows** and the
original, **Linda's**, are known for simple food using quality ingredients,
surprisingly sophisticated cocktails balanced by lower-brow offerings and cans
of cheap beer so everybody -- even **Amazon** business planners -- can keep
their indie cred. Next summer, **Talullah's **is destined to be part of the
four-story mixed-use project at 19th and E Mercer and will represent the
longterm shift of Derschang's efforts toward the ...
Ever since the iPad mini debuted, I've had a plan brewing at the back of my
mind. Sometime in 2013, I'm considering ditching my iPhone, picking up a
refurb 1st gen iPad mini 3G (I assume I won't be putting this plan into action
until the spring at the earliest), and buying a cheap Tracfone with triple
minutes for life.
I figure it would save my family a bunch of cash.
I'd be dropping my unlimited iPhone data plan, but since I'd also be dropping
my voice plan -- a service I barely use, with expensive wasted minutes -- I
could basically buy 3 GB/month for less than I'm paying for my voice/data plan
combined. Instead of paying $70/month, I could cover my voice needs for
$100/year and drop my data to maybe $30/month. Basically, my costs would go
from $840-ish per year down to $480-ish per year.
What's more, I'd address one of my biggest complaints about the iPhone -- the
screen size. The iPad mini's larger screen would work far better for reading
on the go.
And yet, I hesitate.
The honest truth is that I love my iPhone. I love its small portable ...
Time For a Serious Discussion on Gun Control: Moderated Open Thread (crooksandliars)
The weapon used in the Newtown, CT school massacre Friday.
Second Amendment diehards and Gun Control Advocates have been locked in battle
since Crispus Attucks was the first American killed by the British at the dawn
of the American Revolution in 1770.
Having lived in Texas nearly my entire life, raised by a Conservative
Republican father that is also a gun collector and avid gun enthusiast, and
having witnessed more than my share of Right-Wing paranoia that "jackbooted
government thugs are coming to take your guns away" among residents of the
tiny town in which I was raised, and how even the slightest _hint_ of gun
control can actually _worsen_ the situation by fanning the flames of that
paranoia (see: "gun sales since Obama's election and reelection"), I feel
uniquely qualified to moderate a serious discussion on what forms of gun
control legislation could reasonably & conceivably pass Congress today filled
with Conservatives as terrified of the NRA as most of Americans are of gun
In 1993, the Clinton Administration signed into law "The Brady Bill", named
for President Reagan's former Press Secretary James Brady, who survived being
shot in the head by Reagan's would-be assassin ...
DJ Chuckie Talks to VIBE - The Dirty Dutch Exodus (Vibe)
FROM ARUBA TO AMSTERDAM, DJ-PRODUCER AND PARTY SPARKER CHUCKIE IS TAKING HIS
ECLECTIC BASH AROUND THE GLOBE AND BACK
It's the height of October’s Amsterdam Dance Event and Clyde Sergio Narain—aka
Chuckie—is prepping for a nine-hour set behind the decks. In one hour, the 34
-year-old Dutch DJ will hijack the city’s Ziggo Dome to rattle 15,000 fans as
part of his annual Dirty Dutch fest. The arena gathering, set to the backdrop
of schizo light productions, welcomes a genre-mashing throng that rages till 8
a.m. With a London event set for December 8 at Brixton Academy, Chuckie breaks
down his international club campaign.
_**VIBE:** What makes Dirty Dutch different from other electro exhibitions?_
**CHUCKIE:** It’s totally different. This year, because the Dutch hip-hopscene
has gone so well, I wanted to have them onstage with me. I made the crossover
between big producers from the States and big producers from [Amsterdam], so I
invited Just Blaze, who’s done hits for Jay-Z, to team up with Reverse, one of
the biggest producers from Holland. I thought that was a really good best of
_Your style is very hip-hop-driven electronic. How do you fuse the two?_
