Aviator Thomas A. Baldwin Jr. Sitting in an Airplane in Grant Park - November 1, 2009

Aviator Thomas A. Baldwin Jr sits in his airplane during the 1911 International Aviation Meet in Chicago's Grant Park. Baldwin was a popular name among early aviators, but I can't find anything about Thomas A. Baldwin Jr.

The photo comes from the Library of Congress' wonderful American Memory site ( DN-0057541, Chicago Daily News negatives collection, Chicago Historical Society.

Last night we had pizza at Goodfellas, a new place in the Park Mall. It was cold with all the people going in and out, but the pizza was good. If we had gotten a table over by the fireplace, it would have been warmer. We'll do it again.

On a large television, they were showing Night of the Living Dead with closed captioning on. I liked "Aaaaargh."

When we got back, we did not get many trick-or-treaters.
