Ahh ... technology.

That's both the funniest and saddest things I've seen in a long time.

Perhaps some of Google umpteen-bazillion market cap could fix this neighborhood up? Maybe spread the wealth just a little? Maybe offer the community some hope? Some jobs?

Nah ... let's just carry on moving ahead at the speed of light and forget about the people who can't catch up.

Huh?

A kid squirting his brother with a water pistol is sad and somehow Google's fault? And Google is now obliged to rebuild what looks to be a pretty decent neighborhood?

I don't get it.

I don't get it either. As far as Chicago communities go, this one (Chicago Lawn) is about average. U.S. Census data puts this neighborhood's median family income at $47,000, and the crime rate is well below other south side neighborhoods.
