Chicago Signage

Different places have small bits and pieces about them that make them home.  In cities, you generally get keyed into funny/weird signage, especially the ones with glaring typos or new and inventive wordplay.  While we lived in Chicago, there were a few favorites, which some brilliant soul took pictures of and posted online.

Three cheers for the best academic department [...]

Six Degrees of NPR

Running errands, listening to NPR PRI (Show: Here and Now), and … wait … that name sounds familiar …
