Yeah, we know the post counter reads a bit higher. That's because we have a number of posts "in the hopper" so to speak, awaiting more info or an opportune publishing moment. We also passed 600,000 visitors a few days ago and are well on our way to 2.5 million page views (probably before the end of the month). All in all, not a bad set of numbers. How about some quick hits while we celebrate?
- Big raid in the Ickes Homes. Channel 2 and Channel 7 cover it. Eighteen arrests were made and nineteen other fugitives are being sought. Big operations like these seem to be the order of the past few years. If you can decapitate an entire operation in one fell swoop, the disruption factor seems to take it's toll. But has there been a noticable uptick in drug related homicides as the new kids sort out the now vacant corners? We're just wondering.
- A post election tax hike in Chicago? Say it isn't so! And all because the city doesn't know how to give a fair test - in this case, the 1995 firefighters test.
- Does anyone have any news about the FOP Meeting this past Tuesday? We couldn't make it and we were hoping someone had news.
