Yesterday there were smoke bomb attacks on the Montreal Metro which disrupted the morning commute to work for the city's residents. Montreal mayor livid over Metro smoke bomb attacks

My trip to Montreal is in two months so I don't know if the student protests will be over by then.

In two weeks I'm going on a bus trip to Baltimore MD. I plan to visit the American Visionary Art Museum again because that is something I'm really interested in.

Strange days all over this planet.  Locally,Chicago will be the host city for the NATO summit later this month.  We are anticipating approximately 10,000 Occupy protesters.    Every day new info is being released re:  closures, federal intervention and the potential for major chaos.  I won't be venturing downtown.
