Some people outrun drawbridges, others live in them. For three years Richard Dorsay has been living in a makeshift home amidst the girders under the upper roadway of the Lake Shore Drive bridge that spans the Chicago River. The media is calling him homeless but he apparently had rigged electricity from the bridge allowing him to have a TV, microwave, and Playstation in there! He even washed in the normally-empty control-house that operates the bridge’s ups and downs. Best of all, Mr. Dorsay would ride the bridge as it went vertical to let the sailboats through. The cops evicted him Sunday after a former roommate — bridgemate, girderpal? — ratted him out. This guy deserves some sort of ingenuity award from the city — and a warm place to live.
