Polar Plunge 2014: Chicago

Last weekend for kicks I jumped into Lake Michigan. Actually, I did it because someone at work asked me to and because it benefitted a good cause (Special Olympics). Jimmy Fallon and Lord Voldemort (my nickname for our mayor or “He-Who-Should-Not-Be-Re-elected”) were there along with Corey and Henna (who took all the photos you see below). Not sure if I would exactly call it a fun time, but it was a bonding experience. I am lucky to work with some of the best people on the planet and that includes the parents who motivate me to do my best. To paraphrase one of those parents, it is great that once a year people are willing to jump into a frozen lake to raise money for the Special Olympics. It would be even better though if they insisted on superior or just adequate public services for children with special needs the other 364 days of the year. Next year I am going to the Key West Polar Plunge. Noel
