Chicago Local reaction to Hussein hanging

Albany Park weighs in on Hussein hanging


Albany Park, here at Lawrence and Kedzie, doesn't make the news too often... usually a building collapses or a dictator is hanged... normal stuff. But the local news was all a flutter, staking out the Iraqi restaurant Mataam Al-Mataam for some immediate local reaction.

I'm glad to say that the patrons of this Middle Eastern haunt for the undergound foodie and native Iraqi were as classy as it gets. CBS aired a little celebration in Dearborne, Michigan, but Iraqi citizens of Chicago gave some perspective on the hanging for the news audience instead.

Amazing... just down the street you can hang with these guys and get a history lesson for one of the hottest spots in international debate and turmoil. Kudos to CBS for seeking out some intelligent commentary on a subject... I expected the local news channels to screw this one up by seeking out a nutcase for a sound bite.

Considering the topic...I hope when you said "just down the street you can hang with these guys", you didn't mean that literally.  :-)

Linda,

...glad you caught that "pun".  Weird post I know, but I live down the street from the best Iraqi restaurant in Chicago.  My neighborhood is considered the "most diverse" in the country by many who watch that type of stuff. Large Iraqi population and even know a professor from my university that worked for the new government in Iraq for a year. Pretty crazy.

 Happy New Year... I'm spending it on the couch, searching properties (we need a house) on the lap-top with my expecting wife... she has the flew.  Geez.
