Good morning, everyone, it's 10:30am. Happy New Year's Eve to all! Just one more day until 2011 (and I'm thanking goodness for that)! I'm happy that we're going into a new year. I hope that we have a lot less crime in Avondale and Logan Square. It's been crazy in '10. Well, anyway, we'll just be here for New Years. It'll be quiet. Also, as you may imagine, this is the last day until December 1, 2011 that I'm doing Christmas colors. So, here's crime on this last day of 2010.
