THE SPHINX—-CHICAGO– A DISMAL FAILURE

The  Editor:   Do you know why some cities fail in taking care of their citizens, LL ?

Chi-town Cat:   I have a good idea.   Chicago has no law enforcement,  it is as corrupt and fetid as when Obama was a Commissioner.  The murders occurring daily are the result of a liberal government that doesn’t enforce the law.  Here are some facts.  The first is like DUI arrests, you catch 1 out of 10.

The elected officials in Chicago,  Rahm Emanuel the Mayor–Obama’s ex Chief of Staff, couldn’t care less about the African-Americans in his city.

Explanation: Have you ever seen a sun pillar? When the air is cold and the Sun is rising or setting, falling ice crystals can reflect sunlight and create an unusual column of light. Ice sometimes forms flat, six-sided shaped crystals as it falls from high-level clouds. Air resistance causes these crystals to lie nearly flat much of the time as they flutter to the ground. Sunlight reflects off crystals that are properly aligned, creating the sun-sun-pillar effect. In the featured picture taken last week, a sun-pillar reflects light from a Sun setting over Fensfjorden, Norway.
