If you hate Chicago so much, please stop standing in the middle of the sidewalk on Michigan Avenue asking me to take your damn picture, tourists! Chicago folks are proud and haters gon’ hate! Yes, the crime rates are high. But most of us have never been shot. Yes, there’s political corruption. And lots of us try to fight against that. But, this city is beautiful and personally,Ihad to get out of Podunk, USA, and live somewhere that feels alive.
