  1. I almost went, but then I realised I REALLY don’t like crowds, and I’m sure parking woulda been a mess.Real talk, there is no other Bernie Mac, he was an icon is an archetype in both the sitcom and comedian arenas. His sitcom really brung home the idea that a black man from the streets can really be a family man and do it WELL!You will sorely be missed!P.S. Does it warrant mentioning that this House of Hope place is the former Salem Baptist Church of Rev. James Meeks.Or should I say State Senator James Meeks who’s currently calling for a public school boycott by the students on the first day of school in order to bring attention to the lack of school funding–but, Chicago Public Schools receive funding based on attendance numbers.
