A couple years ago I used to walk past the Sun-Times building every day on my commute to and from work. Then it was demolished and construction on the Trump Tower began. I have many photos and updates on my site, but when I got laid off from that job a couple years ago, my regular updates ended.

I spoke to Amanda a short while ago and she said Jess is still talking about riding the train and not about the long boat ride we went on!
