Another Loose Tooth

The chuckhole on Wayne is getting wider. And the brick paved street continues to erode. Following photos are from last night. Unfortunately this tooth broke in half and can't be saved.

Most of Ward 49's funds are going into street repairs this year. What about our most unique street? 6900 N Wayne Avenue. Checking out the last two way brick paved street in Chicago and one of the last in the Midwest is a good excuse to come up to Rogers Park. And while your there have dinner at Act One and maybe catch a show at the Mayne Stage.

It would be money well spent. While it may cost more to repair brick paved roads they last a whole lot longer. And cars rolling by sound that much cooler. Here's hoping that this unusual pothole gets repaired before Wayne Avenue loses any more loose teeth.

Studying the first photo there are several bricks that look wobbly. Especially the center brick in the foreground closest to the half brick. Because of the way bricks fit together having a pothole makes it much more likely the street will fall apart quickly. The jigsaw puzzle is coming apart.

(On loose versus lose. A misspell that this writer has never understood. There are many common mistakes in writing. This particular one is more glaring and harder to comprehend. The guy in link agrees, "Loose vs lose, however, threatens to make my brain implode." Especially so with people who are educated and native English speakers. Why? Because these words mean completely different things and aren't even pronounced the same. Here is an example on Everyblock. Did the writer mean to say did someone "let" loose a deer? )
