Did You Know?

Window washer Sam Hardison has been charged by City Hall with another crime of the century: Falling asleep on a CTA train, with a cookbook in his lap.
So the poor guy may have to pay City Hall a fine of up to $300 for sleeping dangerously. That’s a lot of windows to wash for a nap on the CTA, where payrollers and political hacks have been napping for years, when they’re not taking double pensions, golfing and goofing off.
Unfortunately in Chicago, public sleeping is still a crime, if you work for a living and are exhausted and nod off on the train at the end of a long day that began before 4 a.m.
