At opposite western corners of Florence and Normandie stand two empty lots. One is fenced in chain-link, full of dirt clods and rust; the other choked with weeds run wild. Amid homemade advertisements for hauling services, handyman and gardening work, a dozen or so brightly colored signs adorn the chaos: "Mike Woo For Mayor." Is this a promise?
