I like to say I live in Chicago.  The truth is I live in Naperville, the largest of all Chicago suburbs (population – 138,500).  Naperville, sometimes mockingly called “Naper-thrill” is a great place to live and raise a family.  But sometimes Naperville  makes me laugh; like today when I opened up the Sunday edition of the Naperville SunThe same paper that gave us a weekly lost and found column featuring a lost stocking cap in a community of 138,500 people now has this front page title: GIRLS PLEA TO LEMONADE STAND THIEF, “PLEASE GIVE IT BACK.” Here is the beginning of the lead article:  “The lemonade business turned sour for two sisters who were earning money to buy gifts for their parents. The Bucheit girls – Lucinda, 3, and Marcelite, 5 – made $51 in three

the garage of their baby-sitter’s apartment.
