Latin America has been experimenting with socialism over the 100 years, how has that been working out?

The mission of the music industry is to the artists of reservation, feast, festival, events, recreation and travel for different countries. As Africa the party is 24 hours. When you enter Europe the treat is over at 2 o'clock, but it depends on where you go for the treat. In the Frances the feast finished with 2 clocks as elsewhere in Europe.

We have new clothes design and prices are as supportive gift. But the inspiration, what we take for this company is to put European companies for cultural exchange. We had already been to Europe for experiences and cultural exchange. We already have to learn their culture and what they need and how to meet their usual style needs we have and the cultural exchange. The goals are to bring the business of our company to the new creation. If you enter Asia we already have experience of their culture, because we have eaten with them and we drink with them. They have a different culture, a mine, different personalities for the customer's services and as a new style and true inspiration. People love the Asian side and the creation. Rapandar company productions create new design and new products for cultural exchange and support the system of cooperation, tradition, culture and new style of welcoming people, if they can adapt to the race and to culture. If go to USA they have different types of close to a litter. But we made the state different to learn from their experiences. We learn how to sell products and how to market. We went to California, New York, Hollywood, Visibility to Engels and other places to see and learn how different people, culture and tradition, how important it is.

She like the rest of the dems is pure garbage. All they want is free everything. The socialist scum must be stopped by every means necessary. THese loser hipster illegal loving shitbirds have to go. They are destroying our country and they must be stopped by any and every means possible.

Re: “Chance the Rapper owns Chicagoist—now what?

This article ignores the other news outlet Chance called out in the song, Crain's Chicago Business, which wrote an incredibly innocuous real estate article about his condo. http://www.chicagobusiness.com/realestate/20180420/CRED0701/180429998

In the song, he called them racists and said he was going to run Crain's (along with the Sun-Times) out of business for naming his residence, which was available through public records. That is what this type of business reporting does, whether you're Chance, Jason Heyward, Urlacher, Pritzker or the CEO of Discover - they follow public records on notable residential real estate deals. http://www.chicagobusiness.com/apps/pbcs.dll/personalia?ID=drodkin

I like Chance's music and he's done a great deal of good for the city and schools, but announcing your media purchase will be used to punish journalism outlets because you don't like that they accessed public records is scary. William Randolph Hearst/Joseph Pulitzer scary.

Agreed. I should have noted this instead of assuming it was understood.

Rossana Rodriguez-Sanchez should be insulted when you compare her to Ocasio-Cortez is an insult to human intelligence. Ocasio-Cortez opened her mouth and started talking before her brain was engaged. See https://www.nationalreview.com/2018/07/ale… which discusses here interview on Firing Line.

Re: “Shrew’d! attempts to make Taming of the Shrew palatable to a modern audience

No matter what he is called in his published works or in the playbills of his productions, shouldn't critics like you have the decency to call him "Bernard Shaw" as he wished to be known? How odd that English speakers insist on calling him "George Bernard Shaw" when in Germany, where he is rightly and properly revered, one and all insist on "Bernard Shaw." Perhaps THE READER might start the ball rolling on this?

Re: “Is a Puerto Rican native running for Chicago alderman the next Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez?

"Realistically Dems need to pivot to the center for the betterment of the country,..."

The Democrats pivoted to the center (actually a bit to the right of center) some quarter century ago. Figures like Senator Sanders, Ocasio-Cortez, and Rodriguez-Sanchez, and their enthusiastic supporters, represent an older, more authentically leftist philosophy that the mainstream Democratic party all but abandoned with the advent of Bill Clinton. Apart from the remarkable electoral victories of Obama, we have seen how relatively unsuccessful centrist Democrats have been winning office in recent years; maybe it's time to give the true leftists a fair hearing and chance.

Re: “Is a Puerto Rican native running for Chicago alderman the next Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez?

That won't work as long as we're burdened with the vestigial limb of our democratic republic known as the Electoral College.

The reality is that Democrats needed a wake up call regarding the importance of serous campaigning in the Midwest. Because we saw how it well worked to take Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio and Pennsylvania for granted.

Re: “Is a Puerto Rican native running for Chicago alderman the next Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez?

45000 members is not that great, hardly a "movement." Realistically Dems need to pivot to the center for the betterment of the country, grab the suburbs as the hinterland is a lost cause. Some day universal income will be required, just not now. in the meantime we need to preserve social safety and make saving Social Security a priority...it should be the democratic war cry....

Re: “Cops slammed for ticketing black cyclists: ‘It’s about the police harassing people’

Except that the north side doesn't have the same underlying violent crime problem.

It doesn't have the same issues of poverty, of course, so that's the real question: what is the link, and are all of these resources going into crime prevention a complete waste, and we should simply redirect them into more positive programs like job training and other economic opportunities? Because I don't think it's right to tar all lower income people as more prone to crime, yet, that's basically the assumption here.

At some point the conversation also needs to be had that Chicago as a sanctuary city may be a factor in the sky-high unemployment rate for black males. It's a competition for entry-level jobs, there's just no getting around it.

I am awaiting the next column calling for more aggressive ticketing in Lincoln Park, I'd love to see it. Goddamned Chads and Trixies are a menace to society.

"The only way I can see to break this negative feedback loop is to do what CPD does on the north side, stop policing low-level crimes."

Re: “Is a Puerto Rican native running for Chicago alderman the next Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez?

"Certainly, being elected one of Chicago's 50 aldermen certainly isn't in the same ballpark as knocking out a potential speaker of the House. "

Maybe not in the national sense, but locally, if she knocks out an heir to the Machine I'd say it's an even more telling blow to the centrist wing of the Democrats.

Rosa Ramirez won in a landslide precisely because Colon had zero support outside of developers he had gotten way too cozy with. But Mell had everything going for her in terms of ground game support. I hear that she is worlds more progressive and responsive than her father, so this should be a very interesting race.

On the other hand, neither Mell nor Rosa Ramirez have done anything to address the burgeoning homeless squatter camp under the expressway on Belmont, which has now completely taken over the sidewalk, resulting in people often being forced to walk in a very dangerous street. Instead of platitudes about what Chicago and America should be doing, perhaps both of them could actually cooperate to address this longstanding problem in their own backyard.

Re: “In the silent classic The Lighthouse Keepers, styles and emotions come crashing in like waves

It is encouraging to see critical attention being paid on these shores to the neglected Gremillon (whose name, incidentally, is misspelled as 'Gremilion' in the subject heading of this article). I myself have yet to see any works by this filmmaker, but he is definitely considered a major figure by reputable cognoscenti as diverse as Michel Ciment, Jonathan Rosenbaum, and Jean-Marie Straub.

Reading Mr. Sachs' synopsis makes me wonder if one salient plot element meriting discussion could be the dilemma of the rabid son's proximity to a body of water, one, no less, as enormous as the ocean. One classical symptom of rabies is the painful physiological revulsion to water (sometimes even to the sight or thought of it) that seizes the afflicted, and which could compound the character's agony here and heighten the tension of the story.
