Re: “An East Chicago community dissolves in the fallout from a decades-long lead crisis

The description of the confined disposal facility in the first photo of the BP tanks is inaccurate. The sediment in the facility is dredged from the Indiana Harbor and Canal. It is not "waste and sediment produced from local industry". This sediment has built up in the canal and harbor bottom over several decades from myriad sources and was dredged to maintain navigation as required by Federal law. Due to its contamination, a CDF was necessary to contain the pollutants in the dredged material. The primary contaminants of concern in this sediment are organic aromatic pollutants like PCBs, not the lead that is discussed in the rest of the story. By having these pictures side-by-side, you appear to be conflating the two. There are many sources of pollution in this air- and water-shed. As such, I would expect that a story focused on lead pollution in the Calumet Housing Project would do a better job educating the readers on the specific source(s).

Re: “The radical art of the Chicago Seed

Loved this magazine. I used to sell underground newspapers on Wisconsin Avenue, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, back in 69' and one of them was "kalidescope" (spelling?). I ended up in Nederland, Colorado in 70' and had a small commune there. One day someone showed up and asked to take a picture. The picture was of my friend sitting on an old chair on the front porch of an old mining shack and later saw it in the newspaper (The Seed). I don't know where it went and wish I could locate the issue and get a copy of that picture. Maybe you could help me find it. I hope I hear from you. Thank you so much for getting these wonderful photos out, those were the best times ever! This mag....rocked!

Re: “Chicago House Music: Rave Archive flyers

This event took place just off the highway at the Sky Dive Chicago warehouse area outdoors. You could see it while driving down the expressway lol! I videotaped it.

Re: “Tiki House

Looking at your home I see a connection. My husband and I longed to live by the ocean but after being beat out of 2 homes last summer (2014), we painted our home "island" colors and now we are proud to have an ocean home in Central Texas. Love your work!

You are correct. My apologies for a modest transcription mistake that pains you so.

Re: “The radical art of the Chicago Seed

dan:...i should know i was a vendor as well as on the staff. the policy for most of its run the seed was.35 cents an issue.... if there was a difference one way or another, individual vendors may have been flexible as was their style....the paper did go free for awhile before it folded altogether...:)!

Re: “The radical art of the Chicago Seed

MrJM, some of the captions indeed cut off. They've been fixed.

Re: “The radical art of the Chicago Seed

The Seed cost $.35 if you decided that it was the right thing to do to pay for it. Sometimes it was free, sometimes it cost a dollar. But those were the nature of the heady times that were the late sixties. Too bad that what has not been lost of that time has been so completely bastardized.

Re: “The radical art of the Chicago Seed

An influential magazine. Copies made it to most of the major college campuses and cities for the quick consumption. It turned us hicks into Yippies. Even though we now wear ties we still participate in well meaning causes.

Re: “The trespasses of Chicago's urban explorers

Happy to be featured in this piece but need to point out image #11, the exterior shot of Washburne, is also by Katherine Hodges, but mistakenly credited.
