    Ok so I'm moving to Chicago in a few months and I want to get involved in community service. I want to help tutor underpriveledged kids or help teens with MS. Does anyone know a place in Chiago where I can find more information about volunteering? Oh and if there is a national organization that deals with these issues, that would be great too! Thanks!

    Be very careful as a gay man volunteering around children. A friend was a voluteer for Big Brothers. One day the kid told his mother my friend molested him. That was the end. He was railroaded as a sex offender into state prison for a few years. And he did not molest the kid. He was the sweetest guy. I actually suspect it was the mother who put the kid up to it once she realized he was gay. No way I would ever volunteer around children in todays environment. Think about it.

    Get a speeding ticket, take it to court, and tell them you can't pay it. They'll let you work it off with community service. Don't ask me how I know this. icon_lol.gif
