the last man to ever let you down

Just north of Wrigley Field, from the windows of your red-line train creeping downtown, a dark void in the urban night from the 22 bus on Clark: cemeteries. No doubt you've passed by them a million times if you call the north side your stomping ground. Here's a nice story in The Chicago Reader of Bob Wells, the man who takes care of the grounds of Wunder's Cemetery. Not nearly as flashy or as well-financed as Graceland Cemetery on the other side of Irving Park road, Wunder's has a bargain bin charm you wanna root for.
