CHICAGO—Explaining that the sense of unease she felt walking to and from her home had declined markedly over the years, Humboldt Park resident Kirsten Healy expressed her disappointment to reporters Thursday that her neighborhood was becoming too safe for her family to afford.
POTOMAC, MD—In what is being called a paradigm shift in shower-taking ideology, Matt Kirsch, 27, announced Tuesday his intention to go against a lifetime of bathing tradition by showering at night instead of in the morning. "For as long as I can remember, I have only showered between the hours of 6 and 11 a.m., but as of late I have been filled with questions as to what it would be like to shower right before bed," a robed Kirsch told reporters standing outside his bathroom. "Will the 30 extra minutes of sleep in the morning give me more energy? Will the night shower relax me before bed or have the complete opposite effect? How will going to bed with a wet head affect how my hair looks in the morning? These are just some of the questions I hope to answer." At the conclusion of the press conference, Kirsch bid the reporters good night and urged them to wish him luck.
