Minutes Gained and Minutes Lost

Mitch was in Dallas playing baseball and I was there to watch him play and hang with him. Some father-son time. The day after his game, an “off day” for him, we opted to tour Dallas. In the morning, the Dallas Art Museum. In the afternoon, we decided to hit the “George W. Bush Presidential Museum,” on the outskirts of town, just at the entrance to Southern Methodist University. None of us were huge fans of George W., but we heard that the museum was pretty well done, and out of the dignity of the Office of President, we thought it would be worth our while to pay that museum a visit. Besides, I thought, it will be interesting to see how this Museum could make one of who I think was our country’s worst Presidents look any good.

About the Author

Mike G's photoMike Glasser

Mike has a long term relationship with Rogers Park, having lived here at various times in his life, most recently returning to the neighborhood in August, 2009. While living here as a third year law student, he remembers drunken nights at Biddy Mulligan’s and hosting a couple of memorable parties that he, hypocritically, now forbids his own tenants from having. Years later, after completing his stint as a lawyer, Mike started investing in apartment buildings in Rogers Park (and elsewhere), and soon after, did what many newly divorced real estate investors do: he moved into one of his buildings. In 1992 Mike was one of the founding members of the Rogers Park Builders Group, an organization that he eventually headed for six years, until yielding those reigns three years ago. Around a decade ago, on a whim, he reserved the web site “Rogerspark.com,” which he has been developing ever since, and which co-hosts RP BizArts networking events. Mike is the proud father of three wonderful children, Amy, Mitch and Ella.
