Green Line riders passing by Washington Park this weekend should look for a bustle of activity down below. Several vacant lots around Prairie Avenue and 53rd Street are being turned over on Saturday and 100,000 red tulip bulbs will be planted. Late this week, there were stakes in place, outlining where the bulbs will go. From ground level, it’s hard to tell, but seen from the L, it becomes apparent the tulips are being planted with a bigger picture in mind. “We’re planting the tulips in the shape of houses that should exist,” said Amanda Williams, the artist behind the project.

That intersection was a jungle killing field back in the 50s. Planting flowers is a complete virtue-signaling waste of time. Grave digging is a better use of that time.

FTA: Titled “Redefining Redlining,” the work aims to spark conversation around the disempowerment of Black neighborhoods that followed from banks refusing to lend to residents. Seriously?! Redlining was outlawed in the 1960s but yeah, let's use that as an excuse for why nothing good has happened in the neighborhood in the past 50 years.

I read that during WW II, some Dutch people were so desperate for food that they dug up and ate tulip bulbs. Some Chicago denizens will do the same.

I dunno, sounds like racist gentrification to me. Tulips have historically been a symbol of power and wealth, having originated in the Ottoman Empire, which was a notorious slave trading country. But I'm sure their intentions are noble. (snickers)

A liberal North Carolina judge placed a prospective juror in jail for 24 hours for not wearing a mask in the courtroom. Gregory Hahn, 47, along with 98 other candidates for jury orientation, showed up at the Harnett County courthouse on Monday. Most prospective jurors, including Hahn, were not wearing masks, he recalled. “We were in [an assembly room] for about 20 to 30 minutes, shoulder-to-shoulder, with three-quarters of us not wearing masks,” Hahn told Tucker Carlson Tonight. “So the virus — if there was [a] virus out there – contaminated us anyway.” Despite there being no mask mandate in the courthouse or within the state,

Analysts at RealClearPolitics, who predict the probable outcomes of elections, moved New York’s gubernatorial race from “Lean Democrat” to “Toss-up” roughly three weeks before the election between Democrat Gov. Kathy Hochul and Republican Rep. Lee Zeldin. The rating change happened on Saturday, just over three weeks before the election. The polling comes as Zeldin is within six points of Hochul on the average provided by RealClearPolitics. Zeldin is only 5.3 percent down from the Democrats, with the RealClearPolitics average showing 49 percent support for Hochul and 43.7 percent support for the Long Island Republican congressman.

Alaska Republicans are calling on the Kentucky GOP to formally censure Sen. Mitch McConnell for the bluegrass senator’s interference in the Alaskan Senate contest against the party-endorsed candidate. On Thursday, the Alaskan Republican Party’s District 9 central committee passed a resolution to condemn the Senate minority leader’s spending on behalf of Sen. Lisa Murkowski. The incumbent senator running for a fourth full term in the upper chamber is locked in a tight contest against Donald Trump-backed challenger Kelly Tshibaka, who is also endorsed by the Alaskan Republican Party.

President Joe Biden appeared to get a little too personal while posing for pictures with a young girl and her friends on Friday. “Now, a very important thing I told my daughters and granddaughters: ‘No serious guys until you’re 30,'” the president said while grabbing the girl’s shoulders. (Tweet/Video) “Okay,” the unidentified girl said while laughing nervously, “I’ll keep that in mind.” Another woman in the background could be heard agreeing with Biden, repeatedly saying, “At least.” Kaden D’Almeida — who filmed the moment — appeared to be waved off by a secret service agent from filming further after the president gave his awkward relationship advice to the young girl.

The left’s latest ploy to remake elections is a complicated scheme called “ranked-choice voting” (RCV). Advocates claim it strengthens “majority rule” and leads to a healthier democracy, and they’ve pushed dozens of municipalities and two states to use it. Nevada is their latest target. Voters there will decide on election day if they want to join in this nationwide experiment. If experience is any judge, they’d be wise to sit this one out. If the measure known as Question 3 eventually passes (it would have to pass again in 2024), Nevada’s traditional election system will be upended. Party primaries will be replaced with a California-style “jungle primary.”

A Rolling Stone journalist committed a mortal sin on Saturday morning, daring to tell the truth about Pennsylvania senate candidate John Fetterman. The hits have been piling up against the Democrat after an MSNBC interview revealed that he’s far worse off cognitively than his campaign had previously revealed. The reality that he needs closed captioning, and even then, still can’t always understand what he’s responding to, left many voters feeling misled. For months, the Fetterman campaign had insisted he was generally fine and was on track to recover completely from the massive stroke he suffered back in May.

A frightening report out of the city of Baltimore’s schools finds that in one high school so many students are failing that one of its top students has only passed three classes in four years of attending school. The mother of a student at west Baltimore’s Augusta Fells Savage Institute of Visual Arts recently told Baltimore’s WBFF that her son will not be graduating this year despite attending the school for four years. And she wants to know why this has happened. A major problem students face is the rising crime in Baltimore. Like the rising crime in so many other Democrat-controlled cities, Baltimore’s crime rate continues to spin out of control.

After Stacey Abrams lost her 2018 bid to be the next Governor of Georgia (not that she admitted the loss until recently), she founded a political action committee named Fair Fight PAC that was intended to “combat voter suppression” in the Peach State, which she blamed for her loss or unacknowledged victory, depending on which day you asked her. Fair Fight PAC has since raked in a considerable flow of cash from liberals around the nation who sympathized with her unfair treatment at the hands of the corrupt Republicans in Georgia or whatever.

The 2022 midterm elections have brought some specific races into the spotlight, and one of them is in my home state of Georgia, where football great Herschel Walker is running a tight race against incumbent Sen.
