   Greetings from work in Manhattan.  I've got to go back to the Bronx

WINDY CITY OT:  I haven't heard back from the Chicago Historical Society.
Check out the web site and write an e-mail to them and ask them why they won't
accept my "Windy City" work for free, or even respond to me.  E-mail the
ENYCLOPEDIA OF CHICAGO HISTORY folks at the Newberry Library, too.  This can't
possibly continue.  Full text of the CHICAGO TRIBUNE arrives in June.  It's almost
exactly ten years since I first walked into the CHS.  Is there no human being
at a single Chicago institution to give me a single kind word, ever?

OT:  I have a 6:30 a.m. Friday flight to Namibia.  I'll be back April 28th.
