The Dread Lincoln Park Pirate Is Dead

Well, mostly dead.  From the Chicago Tribune:
Lincoln Towing's license revoked by state regulators
If you lived on the North Side for any length of time, you knew these guys.

It's why, when my friend John told me (far too late) he was sure it was OK that he'd parked my car (I'd loaned him) in the alley behind my apartment building because he knew "It'd only be for a minute" (it was a couple of hours) I was sure it was gonna cost him.the price of a bus ride to the 4800 hunnert block of Clark, and whatever it was gonna cost him to bail my shit brown '88 Cutlass out of car jail.

John was always way too sure about things he had no business being sure about.

Behold, a Tip Jar!
