This is quite an accomplishment. Maybe one of the fast food franchises should give everyone in Chicago a free burrito or small fries with the purchase of a large drink.

I think just to shoot someone in Chicago, you have to hire two union killers, and pay-off a local Alderman. And more than that, to keep from getting arrested.

I wonder if this has to do with the SOPA protest. Maybe even Chicago murderers are outraged by PIPA and SOPA.

That was laugh out loud funny!

They'll probably add this: Please bring out your dead for tomorrow morning's collection.

Don’t worry. They’re just getting ready for the weekend.

As Mary Katherine Stewart said in “Night of the Comet”, “that (gun) is for Friday night in the barrio”.

How about “We’re just living for the weekend?” (Loverboy).
