Chicago News And Op-eds


Hey y’all! Some interesting news coming out of Chi-town includes:

Willis Tower, once known as the Sears Tower, is up for sale! Yep, Chicago’s once apparent tallest building is being sold reportedly for a whopping 1.5 billion dollars! There’s still no word on who the buyers with the big pockets are, but reports are circulating that the investors are from outside of Chicago.

And if that ain’t a blip, y’all, Oprah Winfrey is closing the doors to her beloved Harpo Studios and leaving more than 200 folks jobless. Since shutting down The Oprah Winfrey Show in 2011, Oprah had been using the building as a production studio. Well,that too has passed and Oprah is relocating to sunny California for all of her company’s production needs. See, people, you can’t trust employers of any caliber. Just sayin’

Anyhow, change is good, but being unemployed sucks!

Chicago Mayor and once bff to the President of the United States, Barack Obama, Rham Emanuel ran into a snag this time around for his re-election. There’s going to be a mayoral runoff against, Hispanic contemporary, Chuy Garcia. Still voters need to consider what Mr. Garcia will bring to the table for the good and too trusting people of such obvious politician rhetoric… if elected…

Enough of the Debbie Downer news, people. Y’all need to go here to listen a radio interview of my colleague and I talk about our latest collaboration on relationships, dating and mating from our new book Essence of Romance; A Relationship Guide for Singles and Couples:
