A few new things on my other sites:
Playground Jungle asks "What Does P.U. Stand For?"
Weird Chicago covers the ongoing debate about The Fool Killer, the mysterious submarine found buried in the Chicago River in 1916.
I'm also doing some revising of Halloween Specials.net, my blog about Halloween cartoons, to get it in shape for "the busy season" in Sept/Oct. Speaking of Halloween, I'll soon have a couple more Library visits to add to my "tour dates" in October - I'll be speaking about ghosts and other weird Chicago stories at a few different libraries.
I'm also in the process of doing some minor site redesigning - I'll be starting up a series of music essays, as well as a series called "Sketches of Chicago."
