help Jacques plan his Chicago trip.
this goes out to the Windy City Citizens out there: please send me dangerous sightseeing tips, deepdish do's and dont's, downtown parking warnings, thai joints to avoid, free health clinic locations, and any back-of-the-phonebook tattoo coupons any of you might have. The wife and I are coming to Chicago next month and I aims to be prepared.

Tacitus "top 20 worst of the 20th century"
Interesting to see Lenin and Qtub made his top ten. Surprised at some. Bertrand Russell does seem a bit sniffy but he does qualify it:
Some were chosen for outright evil; some for bearing responsibility for actions that bore bitter fruit later on; some for failing to take actions that they should have. I'd probably take Bertrand Russell off if I had to do it again: I included him for being a person of detestable character, but that's hardly an outstanding characteristic in the 20th century.I agree with many on his list though.
