Wicker Park: November 2007 Archives

I don't know how many people watch CAN-TV, Chicago's cable access channel.
On any given night, I figure there's at least 50 of you out there. Give or take.

Once in a while, I'll check it out — mostly because I like watching kooks on TV, specifically, — 3 Guys Pickin' (Check it out on Channel19, Monday's 10:30 p.m.)

But what CAN-TV is best for is getting a good look at your alderman, especially if you only see your ward boss around election time. For 30 minutes a pop, they tackle important issues in the hood.

That is if you consider the "Dos and Don'ts" of Chicago's trial recycling program super important or even necessary.

It's enough to make you ask yourself, "People really voted for these guys?"
