I LOVE ...
-- Barbara Rieffel, Chicago
. . . Phil, the Navy Pier trolley driver, who befriends every passenger and is such a wonderful ambassador for our city.
-- Jan Kuramoto, Chicago
... Chicago Water Taxi on a sunny spring morning. What a great way to start the day.
-- Micky Patrick, Arlington Heights
...the newly installed pink stone pavers at Buckingham Fountain, which replaced the dusty pink pebbles. An already picturesque scene has been dramatically enhanced.
-- John Brand, Chicago
I HATE ...
... when Chicago Symphony audiences break into tumultuous applause BEFORE the last exquisite notes have a chance to linger for a nanosecond before fading away forever.
-- Karen Steil, Arlington Heights
... when you're spending $20 for breakfast and a coffee shop still charges you for a pot of hot water and lemon slice -- when they don't have real herbal tea.
-- Judy Hevrdejs, reporter
... that spring supposedly runs from late March to late June, but we don't seem to receive beautiful spring weather for more than 3-4 weeks (after subtracting the cold and/or snowy/sleety days ... and the hot and/or rainy days).
-- Paul Lockwood, Woodstock
