Being my travels down those great two lane highways of this nation as well as news I learn about them from media sources. Since I'm also very interested in historic preservation, there will be a lot of that as well.

Chicago's Old-School MapQuest-- Part 1
From the August 25, 2013, Chicago Tribune by Patrick T. Reardon. ////
"Edward Paul Brennan was a nobody. One of us. //// Born in 1866, he made deliveries for his father's grocery store, then worked downtown at the Lyon & Healy Co. music store as a bill collector and later as a building inspector. //// Yet, few individuals in Chicago history have had as much impact--for the good-- on the daily lives of Chicagoans, suburbanites and visitors to the city." //// And, I bet you have never heard of him. I was only vaguely aware of him until i read this article. //// --So, Who Was He? --RoadDog
