Mike is a citizen columnist who scribes about his Chicago life without taking prisoners on his blog, CHICAGO CARLESS. An ex-New Yorker, trained urban planner, and Adult ADDer, he's happily called the Windy City home since 2003. Like Studs Terkel before him, Mike intends to go to his grave without learning how to drive a car. He's been pursuing that goal for 38 years. And counting.
