That's death in the big city.

Fifteen people came to violent ends in gun-free Chicago over the four day holiday weekend.

Here in the sleepy outer K-Town 'burb of Concord, I stubbed heck out of my toe on Sunday.

This kept me from feeling like going up the hill to add to the noise of gunfire coming from the back yard; it sounds like they've got hanging steel up there now, though, so I should probably go check it out...

Chicago, 1963, last week on Crime Story...

I miss Dennis Farina and the boys battling Chicago bad guys with 1911s in hand.

Sorry you hurt your foot, but very envious of the whole stepping out into the backyard for target practice ability.

Yeah, well, I'm shocked.

Makes you wonder why they bother to rebuild the place. Just let it sink back into the swa... Oh, wait. Chicago, not New Orleans. Nevermind.

there's been hanging steel up the hill since May at least.
