    1st Fatality of Cubtober

    Post by Harry Caray on Fri Oct 09, 2015 6:58 am

    Yesterday morning I go out to get the newspaper.  Cup of coffee in hand.  Sit in chair on my front porch.  I see a Copper get out of his car and walk around the yard next door.  Hear the siren.  Fire truck comes followed by ambulance.


    They bring a neighbor woman out from between the building next to mine and the one further south.  The GANGWAY in Chicagoese.




    I see them put her in the ambulance.  She is white as a ghost and her head just flops.  OUT COLD.


    My guess is she was hammered.


    She was.  


    However, she lives on the top floor of a 4 unit condo.  Her condo has the rooftop deck.


    Friends of hers came by at 1:00 pm.  I noticed the hospital visitor sticker on one.  They told me she died.


    Talked to a few neighbors from the building south.  The friends told me the Cops determined she used her credit card for a cab at 1:00 am from Wrigleyville.


    A woman in the building next to hers told me at 2:00 am she heard a loud thud....she thought a fan fell off a ceiling in a unit below hers at the time.


    We pieced this together before the Detectives arrived.


    Broken pelvis.  Internal bleeding.  Was between buildings for 3 hours.


    She lived in the top floor unit with rooftop deck.


    The walls have to be to code.  They are at least 4 feet up there.


    In her 30s.


    Later last night I asked younger neighbors what kind of drugs are popular in bars lately.


    Her boyfriend had left the bars and was asleep when this happened.


    I highly doubt she was pushed.  You have to make a real effort to get over the walls.  No signs of a struggle on her body.


    She was in her 30s.


    God rest her soul.

    Such a damn shame. Her whole life in front of her. Sounds like alcohol and or drugs takes down another. So many that I've known over the years gone as a result of various abuses. Some people have never figured out that you can have a good time without getting totally blotto. Probably never will. Took me years to learn that very lesson.

    And in her case over what? A fucking sports team? So sad.

    IN HER 30'S.  I ASSUME LIVING IN SIN SINCE THE STORY MENTIONS A SOUND ASLEEP BOYFRIEND.  I ALSO ASSUME SHE WAS CHILDLESS

    JUST ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF THE DECLINE OF WESTERN CIVILIZATION.

    I WONDER IF IT OCCURRED TO ANY OF THE BOARD GENIUSES THAT THE ONLY BOTTLE THIS CHICK SHOULD HAVE BEEN CONCERNED ABOUT AT 2AM IS A BABY BOTTLE.

    In the Czech Republic the government has your concerns and encourages couples to have more than the normal 1child. So that after birth, the mom can take a year off at 70% of her salary, 2yrs off at 60% and have her job guaranteed , or 4 yrs off without a guaranteed job but at 50 and 40% of her salary. You willing to put your tax money where your mouth is?

    It sounds like a place where employers won't hire too many childbearing age women. scratch

    On the other hand, if all these benefits are paid thru increased taxation, it sounds like a place where anyone not currently having children may want to consider leaving...

    That was every Friday or Saturday night in college.  Still doing that in your 30s is a problem.

    Really don't get this. Had more than my share of nights where got drunk.
    BUT, never went out TO get drunk. Knew there was to be a lot of drinking and had all nighters (driving to Cicero at 4 a.m. because they still had bars open).
    Just never said to myself or buddies let's go get drunk.
    The drug era was just after me- marijuana in high school but not very prevalent-it was for musicians.
    When I tried it, really didn't do anything for me so don't know if I ever did it more than once twce after that.

    There have been times where I have stayed home and said, "I'm going to get drunk tonight." I usually stopped after two drinks when boredom set in.

    When I talk about drug era after me, referring to college. LSD was after college-law school etc-and not too many in law school were into LSD.
    Some of the heavier stuff out after law school-cocaine and heroin, but never had the desire to try that. Knew about some big firm parties where cocaine out on table. Know some people who said they used heroin "recreationally-just like marijuana" not regularly and not addicted!!
    Wasn't the least bit interested in that

    Yeah, you're one tough cookie. Nobody on this board flexes their internet muscles more than you. Also, you have a lot of business calling someone retarded when your spelling is time and again roughly on the level of a 4th grader.

    If Beckham is still available in late February, he might be worth a minor league contract.

    The city of Charlotte needs a husband young man with great hair to replace the near death Ric Flair.
