    I wish I could "hear" what Slats Grobnick would think of Chicago getting the Olympics.

    R.I.P. Cyrano and Roxanne.

    I do miss Slats, and it was a really really sad day when Mr. Royko left us so suddenly.

    I certainly hope so.

    When I saw the title of this thread, I thought it was in reference to the fact that the Cubs have the best record in baseball in June. I think I heard that they hadn't been in this position since 190-something.
