The Expired Meter Awarded In Reader’s ‘Best Of Chicago’

Has the Chicago Reader lost its mind?

That’s the question on many people’s minds.

It seems the Chicago Reader, via reporter extraordinaire Mick Dumke, has included The Expired Meter in it’s Best of Chicago issue and the Parking Ticket Geek as the “Best Blogger.”

In all seriousness, despite our befuddlement in being chosen, we are VERY honored with being included in the Reader’s Best of Chicago issue.

Here’s the full story, “Best Blogger, Reporter, Activist, and Authority on the City’s Exasperating and Expensive Traffic Policies.”

    Great job Mike! You totally deserve it. I am glad you are getting some recognition for all the work you have done over all these years.

    Now that you’re a celebrity, don’t go all Hollywood on us. To wit, we do not want to see:

    (1) a Parking Ticket Geek Fragrance Launch (“Traffic by Geek — a manly musky cologne with tones of bus exhaust”); or

    (2) a Parking Ticket Geek Reality Show (“This week on Geek Gone Wild, Geek goes hot-tubbing with a sexy new meter maid – will they be back before their 2 hours of parking expires??”)

  3. Geek you ought to come out with a new line of ticket papers in designer colors.
    They would all have on e common trait, that once written all the written characters would disappear within five minutes of issuance.
