I want to thank Wednesday Journal and all the letter writers for setting the record straight about gang activity at Oak Park and River Forest High School. I am relieved to learn that no gangs exist at OPRF; that no OPRF students are members of gangs; that no OPRF students know gang hand symbols; that “lighting up” the stadium will create no gang commercial activity; and that the geometrical artwork that I see spray-painted and carved on park benches, fire hydrants, hand dryers in the public library men’s washroom, brick walls, sidewalks, underpasses, and garage doors has been produced by swamp gas.
