You still have a few more days to enjoy the beach at the South Shore Cultural Center on the south side of Chicago. I took an out-of-town guest there yesterday when I pointed out the birds and the prairie and wetland habitat. Recently, we had a great tour there during a MELA program. I find it quite an amazing sign of the times that this lovely country-within-the-city spot is now accessible to all; it was restricted to African-Americans and Jews in the past during its incarnation as a country club.
