3 Miles from Wrigley Field the Night the Cubs Won it All

First thing I see as I pour coffee today is the Trib's front page photo: a large, color portrait of a mother in agony, kneeling over the body of her dead son. He was shot in the face during the night and she, after failed attempts by the police to keep her away, finally rushed through to touch, "My baby." Another gun death in Chicago last night.

If you've never been there, Chicago is a big place. It goes for miles in all directions once you get away from the lakefront high rises, beaches, parks. We lived and worked there a long time ago. Now our children live, work, and go to school there.

Last November, the Cubs won the World Series. Maybe you heard about it.
