I'm glad it's summer so we don't have to deal with those animals from 142 or whatever they're calling that school now. They're always by the subway station on President & Carroll near the pharmacy. When they get out of school they walk up 2nd Place like a stampede of wild animals escaping from the zoo. Glad I won't have to see them for the next two months.
