If you can’t use the global internet soap box to exercise your right to free expression, then what good is it?
Guy Cicero is originally from Cicero, Illinois. Cicero was in the 50’s and 60’s a great place to grow up—and a lot of great folks did. But by the time I was 16 or so, I knew I wanted to leave.
After college, I left Cicero for 42 years, living for long stretches in the San Francisco Bay Area and in Virginia. I returned to Chicagoland for a job, experienced a profound Rip Van Winkle effect, and have settled into a Chicagoland very different and yet very much the same.
