Chicago Floods-31

I think that we would all be hard-pressed to recall a week like this one with the tragedies in Boston and in Texas.  In addition there was a large amount of rain locally here in the Chicago area with wide-spread flooding in parts of the city and the suburbs.  Best wishes to all who were impacted.

Here are a few links to some great weekend financial reading.

      Thanks Jon, no flooding near us but as you know some of the suburban areas around Chicago got hit very hard and are still recovering.
