  • Sharon, this article is a hoot! Thanks for digging it out of archives. It also explains where we get all the low-life politians in Illinois. Their mothers were ferried over to Thebes and they settled in Cairo and bred politians for Chicago.

  • One of Cape's most notorious houses of ill repute was located across from the police station. The building is still there.
