    Had a conversation today with a lady at work who was born in the Wild 100s. Hope this movie has some impact.

    Seeing those street scenes hits a little too close to home and I never go south of the loop.

    I really do wish this could work.  

    Hearing sustained gunfire while parking at The Palmer House is a bit disconcerting.
