And… here’s the fire in the Chicago Loop that was blocking traffic last night as I tried to get home from kickboxing. I’d never seen so many firetrucks and so many diverted taxi cabs in one place before.

This is the second highrise fire they’ve had in the year I’ve been here (that one also diverted me on the way home, this time by blocking the pedestrian tunnel between the red and blue train lines, as the building on fire was just above that section of tunnel). In both cases, neither building was outfitted with sprinklers. In the first case, this and some locked stairways resulted in needless deaths.

What is this, 1900?
