It looks like super glue sales will go thru the roof in Chicago. Good! business people need the income.

DISCLAIMER: I report this because we experienced a severe rate hike at parking meters here in Phoenix recently, making this story relevant. I am NOT inciting violence or suggesting that anyone act in any given manner; nor do I advocate the willful destruction of parking meters anywhere, for any reason.

As with everything else, we all have the CHOICE of paying whatever fee is required for the convenience of utilizing that particular location (whether a PUBLIC SPACE - belonging to THE PEOPLE - can be STOLEN by a municipality for revenue generation is the subject for another discussion), or make 'other arrangements'.
