Anyone in the Loop? Deserted today?

I'm remote today for non-NATO reasons... but am hearing how Metra was pretty empty this morning.

How're things looking downtown today?

Pretty quiet it down here. Train was a little over 50% what it normally is. I'll go for a walk at lunch maybe and see if it's a ghost town.

That'd be a great idea if the police presence wasn't like 10x higher than normal around here

Pretty dead down here. Average amount of tourists for a friday but hardly any business folks and there is jack squat for car traffic. You could darn near walk down the middle of franklin.

The quiet before the storm...storm of dirty hippies! The faint scent of patchouli oil fills the night sky, a reckoning is coming lol

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

no way they would chase, 95% are on foot, bicyle, or horse, you would have a freebie

they'd just need to radio everyone in the area, you'd eventually get stuck at some sort of light and then one could just walk right up to you.

that assumes that someone would care enough to call it in, and another would care enough to run out to you ,unless you kill someone thats not likely, the city is not that coordinated even chasing gangbangers, plus you would need to stop at a light,

true, watching some tard do wheelies on a tard would probably be the highlight of the day.

Was actually nice seeing 90 empty for the first time empty since i dunno 6 years ago when once rush hour was done traffic flowed nicely and highways were empty at night

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .
