THEY FORGOT HER....
BUT WE WON'T!!!!

Genelle Guzman-McMillan was the last person found alive in the rubble of the World Trade Center.
She went to work on September 11, 2001, on the 64th floor.
When the towers came down she was buried for 27 hours, longer than any other person.
Her story should have been included in the World Trade Center Movie released in 2006.

SHE IS ALIVE!

Chicago Iceman: 1930 https://www.differentslants.com/?p=6828 Galesburg, Illinois antique store Rickety shop by a ripening cornfield Dirty windows, cracked glass Door with a spring that slammed against my ass As I edged inside Gloomy, long wooden tables Seemed to me even the shadows had shadows...
Latest glowing review from Amazon: "Lincolnomics does a wonderful job in placing some of our current economic issues into historical perspective...This deeply researched work can be helpful to investors and/or readers simply interested in the poetic nature of history." #lincolnomicsjfw
I am the last man on the Planet who cares that July 11, 1896 is Bill Reynolds 125th birthday. A man I met out of the past who taught me all there was to know about a now extinct business, running a Chicago newsstand on a corner. I was 15, he was 69, an encyclopedia of old ways of seeing the world, how to treat women, words I never heard, how to defend myself, how to stand up to thieves, hot to keep warm at 20 below zero. Now 71, older than he was when I met him, this will be my last post about Bill. Read about this incredible man, and please comment when you finish. https://www.differentslants.com/?p=2182
Why did Ralph Nader say "Lincolnomics" is "a book to be read and used today?"
A surprise find in the archives...Ernie Banks and Chicago Cubs played an exhibition game against San Diego Padres of the Pacific Coast League in 1958!! Cubs 8 Padres 0. Ernie was having a banner year. He's so nice and gracious to Lute Mason, KFMB sports anchor. Crystal clear film of the Cubs dugout and game.
Name a beloved  Business that went belly up out of the owner died and the family took over. Or the owner retired and sold it to some one who didnt seem to care about the  Business.

The Rainbo Roller-rink event with Latino DJs in Chicago early 80’s. We create a culture in Chicago (the Midwest) that has not yet been documented in Latino history or has been left out. The truth is that these were the real ones that made the party. They were grass roots and urban innovators that created a subculture for teens in Chicago’s dance scene.
