Frank Sinatra once sang a song about Chicago being "my kind of town."
Now, it's a place that nobody wants to be around.
It's a pity with what is happening within the Windy City;
The nickname now applies for bullets whizzing by which has made neighborhoods grimy and gritty.
As an example, the number of people murdered in Chicago in 2012 is over 450.
In comparison, the number of US soldiers that have died in Afghanistan this year is around 250.
It's safer to walk around in the Afghan desert being sniped at by the Taliban and dodging IED's that go bang
Than walking in neighborhoods in Chicago dodging bullets from rival gangs.
Maybe what needs to happen in Chicago
Is that there needs to be an arms embargo.
However, the USA chooses to keep urbanized areas broken without any hope of fixing;
A perfect example of why the "War on Drugs" was implemented by former President Nixon.
