Pilsenite, Henry

We have this thing called Pilsenites.  Those of us who live in Pilsen, Chicago.  During the end of summer, I was walking home from the great Pilsen neighborhood grocery store, La Casa Del Pueblo, and met Henry.  A true Pilsenite.  His family were some of the first in the originally Czech neighborhood of Pilsen.  Now it is primarily a Mexican neighborhood, few Eastern Europeaners still live there.  However, Henry remains true to his neighborhood having lived here his whole life.
