Col. Robert McCormick, the longtime editor and publisher of the Chicago Tribune, in an undated photo. The Supreme Court’s definitive 1931 ruling on freedom of the press, Near v. Minnesota, resulted from a lawsuit that was paid for, out-of-pocket, by Col. McCormick. In 1971, the Supreme Court drew upon this 1931 ruling in deciding that the government’s justification for trying to withhold the Pentagon Papers was, in essence, censorship. The ruling explained the Nixon administration could not prevent The Washington Post and The New York Times from publishing the Pentagon Papers, a secret government report on the Vietnam War. McCormick’s attorney argued in 1931 that defaming the government is “an inalienable privilege of national citizenship.” Read more about Near v. Minnesota and Col.

Chicago Dept of Health advice on preventing coughs and sneezes, published in 'Dr Evans' How to Keep Well' by William Augustus Evans, 1917. 
Dr Evans (1865-1948) was the Public Health Commissioner of Chicago between 1907 and 1911, and then served as health editor for the Chicago Tribune. He went on to become president of the American Public Health Association and was a key figure in the APHA's response to the influenza pandemic of 1918-19. 
The rhinovirus wasn't discovered until the 1950s and in Evans' time, colds were thought to be caused by a variety of bacteria, including those responsible for pneumonia, diphtheria and tuberculosis. People would be more susceptible to these germs if they sat in draughts, spent too much time in stuffy rooms, wore inadequate clothing or overindulged in alcohol. The advice to avoid a cold included staying away from crowds, getting plenty of fresh air and keeping in good general health through diet and exercise. 
One correspondent to Dr Evans asked whether his frequent colds were the result of travelling through Illinois and Iowa a lot. Evans' reply was 'No. Blame yourself and let Illinois and Iowa alone’!

Chicago, 1946. 15 minutes after a close call Tom Minick was back at it. “For a while there I thought I was a goner,” Minick said, wiping the sweat from his forehead. Then he rubbed his aching back, smiled and said: “Guess I’ll go back and finish my job.”

I haven't posted in soooooo long!!! My shirt explains exactly why. I'm so busy this month but hope to be back to blogging business as usual in a few weeks! I do have a few things to share, including a DNA test and some makeup products I've tested. So hopefully I can write those up soon! It was so windy today, but it was around 30 degrees so I asked hubby to snap a photo of me on this cute tee I just HAD to have from the Chicago History Museum yesterday while me and my girl were on a playdate. Local mamas - if you haven't gone, check it out!!! The kids had a great time! 💋

“Annnndddd Nowwww....” So THIS happened today. Stopped in Goodwill on my way home to pick up a couple odds and ends for a project, and lo and behold! A BAG of 90’s era bulls newspapers! (There was one Cubs paper and a few Sox ones, but who cares! They both sucked back then. It was all about the Bulls in the 90’s!Lol.) Thanks for pricing it at a sweet dolla-99! Hubby is super excited to look them over. Check my Insta-Story for Close ups!

Remember food courts? More specifically the ones at the mall? They're not extinct just yet. This little stand in Golf Mills is serving Korean favorites like Donkatsu (fried pork cutlet). Breaded in-house and freshly fried to a nice crisp. Dare I say this is pretty good mall food? I do. #Donkatsu

So I guess at one point many years ago the city of Chicago was giving out these official dibs chairs to residents who were licensed drivers in good standing and had a whole department assigned to manage the program. Crazy right. Yeah, not really, but if they did the chairs might have looked like this. A fun piece I just did for a charity event with @havaschi. I guess I should also mention that no actual city property was used in the construction of this piece all the parts are original bits and pieces I made, aged and rusted in the lab. Believe it or not this was a new chair a few days ago.

Found Photo - Vienna Hotel, 39th & Indiana, Chicago.  Gone.  #foundphoto #vintagephoto #chicagohistory #chicago #southsidechicago
Michael Abramson was a Chicago photographer who photographed patrons in various smaller clubs on Chicago’s south side in the 70s. His photos are remarkably intimate, and often free of the decadence and rampant hedonism of the disco scene in New York (not that I have anything against that hedonism, mind you). Though these venues weren’t disco venues per se, disco music, along with blues, soul, and funk, made frequent appearances. His body of work captures a rarely seen side of nightlife, filled with moments of quiet longing, laughter, uncontained joy, and the unbreakable bonds of a community that has come together to have a good time. His work humanizes his subjects in a way that isn’t often seen in nightlife photography, making Abramson’s work a truly unique addition to the field 📸♥️
