He's Chicago's Walking Man, and Tuesday May 24th, he was brutally attacked by someone with a baseball bat. It happened on Lower Wacker Drive, near Lake Shore Drive at 11 a.m. - broad daylight...
He's in the hospital right now. I don't know what his financial situation is, but it can't do any harm to make sure that he has a nest egg to get him home safely, and set up with any rehab equipment he needs.
Heck, he might even need cash to take a cab!
The Walking Man is one of those fixtures of downtown Chicago life that makes our city special. The idea that someone as harmless as he is could be attacked spoils a little bit of what I love about this city.
