As the newly appointed chancellor of Chicago’s City Colleges, Salgado’s job will be to upgrade student performance.

As we progress, Chicago’s Famous fablulous Follies Burlesque Theatre offers Tanya Leigh on the Stage and Natures Intent on the Screen on the flashy marquee.

    Who'da thunk that Rush Street was once cool ?
    Milt Trenier at 1:27 , Oscar Brown at 1:47.
    Milt was still playing on and around Rush Street , as late at the Late 90's ,
    and is still going strong , today , though mainly in the burbs and that fake speakeasy joint , Untitled. Well…..it was'nt too heinous when I saw him there.
