Let's Pack the Place! Great People always step up to help families in trouble. Every business in my neighborhood of Morgan Park is festooned with posters announcing fund-raising benefits for suffering families - it's a cultural thing. A young girl was savagely beaten near to death and her family needs help. Great people are on it. I'll see you there!
