I liked this article.  I

have been reading some of the postings today, but I would not respond because it seems futile to try to have an intellectual discussion about politics on hear with people resulting to name calling and personal attacks. 

True osama was the catalyst that started the sense paranoia, but it was the president that manipulated that paranoia, and the people for allowing it.  Even though I supported Kerry, I honestly can't get upset with bush for winning.  He didn't force people to vote for him.  He did what any other politician would do and manipulated facts, mislead the people, and allowed his own personal interests and the interests of his "friends" influence his decisions.

I could care less about his military record or his drug use just like I didn't care about Clinton’s side activities.  What concerns me is the erosion of individual rights, the use of the constitution to exclude an entire group of people.  The use of the law to deny privacy to the individual under the name of "national security"

another thing that bothers me is the manipulation of religion.  People like bush pick and choose scripture to support their views and ignore others.  In many cases these scriptures are used out of context.  Also, people like bush overlook anything that doesn't fit into their ideology.

Of all the things I dislike about this president and there are many, I have no choice but to go another 4 years.  No matter what happens in this country, and how angry I am about bush's decisions, I have to realize we give him the ability to screw us over for four more years.  I guess I will suck it up until Hilary is elected.

I don't need statistics.  Drive through there sometime, park your car for more than an hour, and see if you still have your hubcaps, hood orinament, and mirrors.  I've been there enough times to know that it's an extremely dangerous area after dark (and the only reason it's not during the day is that the crack dealers are all passed out from the night before). 

Best of luck if you end up going there--you'll need it.

i am not planning on going to U of C or even applying and I don't live in Hyde Park so i have nothing to gain by writing this.

U of C is very theoratical when it comes to meaning law.  This mean they teach u and expect u to understand the theories and principles more so than practical applications.

As far as the attitude and environment, U of C is just like harvard or yale.  It is built on tradition, reputation, and the idea that it is only avaiable to the elite.  It just as stuck up as the other schools that so many on here want to go to.

Now what really pisses me off is your description of HYde Park.  APparently u have never lived there or visited the area for extended periods of time.  Hide park as a middle to upper class neighborhod with good schools.  the crime rate is not any higher than other neighborhoods with the same economic make=up in the city.

You are basing ur comments on outdated and inaccurate information.  Since i live in chicago and know the hyde park area fairly well, I think i am able to provide a realistic description and I have to say ur description is total off.  where did u get ur information?
