A Rickshaw Rick’s driver to two customers as they wheeled down Elizabeth Court (the only curved street in Oak Park): “He was sick to death of living on this street. Then one day, by God, he did something about it.”

Several minutes later, on Forest Avenue between Elizabeth Court and Ontario at 4:25 p.m. the Saturday afternoon before last: Cheers from the general direction of the OPRF football stadium.

Several minutes later, a father holding a football, heading into Austin Gardens with his young son (who was wearing a Denver Broncos jersey):

Dad: “Tony Dorsett played for Dallas.”

Son: “T.O.?”

Dad: No, Tony Dorsett.”

Generation gap.
