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.

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.
