      Folks on summer strolls
      Walking through the neighborhood
      Please get off my lawn

      Lemonade and lawns
      Used to be jobs done by kids
      Now it’s licensed pros

      Summer music fest
      Thousands moshing the main stage
      I’ll just sit back here

      Ernest Hemingway’s
      Novel To Have and Have Not

      From my vacation

    Comments Policy

    Chicago Boyz values reader contributions and invites you to comment as long as you accept a few stipulations:

    1) Chicago Boyz authors tend to share a broad outlook on issues but there is no party or company line. Each of us decides what to write and how to respond to comments on his own posts.

You may think that we deleted your comment unjustly, and you may be right, but it is usually best if you can accept it and move on.

    2) If you post a comment and it doesn't show up it was probably blocked by our spam filter. We batch-delete spam comments, typically in the morning. If you email us promptly at we may be able to retrieve and publish your comment.

    3) You may use common HTML tags (italic, bold, etc.). Please use the "href" tag to post long URLs. The spam filter tends to block comments that contain multiple URLs.
