Cab #5621

Date: 4/12/09
From: West Loop
To: Roscoe Village

The Cab: Heavily fortified with burglar shield opened just enough to accommodate winding plastic air conditioning tube. It's a fine line indeed between security and comfort.

The Driver: A bit hard to see through all the shielding and notices of passenger rights and licensure. Mark him as "present."

The Driving: Holy cats, it's the Ashland-Bahn! It's like Grand Theft Auto up in here! Hold onto your hats, hold onto your children . . . hold onto whatever you hold dear, because this Millennium Falcon's hitting Warp Speed, Chewie! Amazingly no red lights were run, although it's entirely possible they were out-run.

Overall rating: 3 extended arms, one of which blew off by the Hollywood Diner.

There are more than 6,000 cabs in the city of Chicago. We intend to review every one of them.
