I’ve long known Michael Romain was thoughtful, insightful, provocative and just plain smart. I didn’t know until this week’s column that he has quite the biting wit. I’m now feeling inspired to recreate his walk from Millbridge Road to Joliet Avenue in order to truly understand what could lead to the unleashing of such gems as “the North Riverside Mall … looks a high school jock who peaked his senior year, started balding in his 20s, was raised on ESPN, and is now into the wisdom of Joe Rogan.” Take no prisoners, Michael!

And please vote YES to the Forest Preserves referendum — for Michael’s sanity and the sanity of everyone in Cook County.
