:: debit cards, two
:: valid ohio driver’s license
:: expired university of chicago ID card
:: U of C library access card with someone else’s name on it
:: radio shack receipt(s) for a dub cable that didn’t really work
:: a newspaper clipping that said “U.S. divided, but analysts don’t expect culture war”
:: chicago public library card
:: copico card with like $0.45 on it
:: like eight or nine CTA cards with a balance of $0.00

  1. I was tempted to be all like “DO YOU EVEN KNOW WHO I AM? I RUN THIS TOWN” to the guy. but i’m (mostly) glad I didn’t.

  2. If you like 2 or more of the following things you are still a new deal liberal.
    1) farm subsidies
    2) hydro electric power &/or rural electricification
    3) noblesse oblige/ striped pants
    4) fascist architecture
    5) organized labor

    getting mugged shouldn’s have anything to do with. We can talk more about this after I get mugged.
