Peaceful picture, no?
That's to counteract the fact that today I stood by as a big fifty-something year old Jewish deli owner got into a scuffle in the middle of Ontario Street in downtown Chicago, threatened to have a parking valet deported, screamed an impressive variety of mild ethnic slurs at full voice, and had to have a bistro chair removed from his hands (by me) before he used it to clobber the proprietor of a nail salon.
The altercation was over a parking space.
Parking's tight in the city, man.
