Few people know this, but we were part of the team mapping the human genome. It was a massive undertaking, but we were a tiny cog in the large machine that may one day lead to all sorts of cures for all sorts of diseases. Why, just the other day, we discovered a familial attraction to lead. Observe the Tribune article:
  • The uncle of an 11-year-old boy fatally wounded Wednesday at his Park Manor neighborhood home has been charged with manslaughter in the boy's death.

    Eurel L. Wilford, 19, of Rockford, was charged Friday in the death of his nephew Antwone Earl Price Jr., according to court documents. Wilford was charged with with involuntary manslaughter and unlawful use of a weapon, said Cook County state's attorney's office....
How is this scientific you may ask? Read on....
  • The boy's father, Antwone Earl Price Sr., was found shot dead with another man in Price's parked white Camaro on May 22, 2013, in the Englewood neighborhood. At the time of his death, his grandmother, Myrtis Price, said her son, Anthony Price, who was the older Antwone Price's father, was shot and killed in 2000.
Not only was he felled by lead, but his father and grandfather were both victims of this pervasive disease. We aren't sure what form the cure will take, but one day....

Is it safe to say it's hereditary? It sure sounds like it to me.

Higher property taxes and rents are the answer.

Get this family the fuck out of Chiraq and into the south burbs where they belong.

Let them become a problem for a Robbins CumStat meeting.

Sad, It is like the poor kid was doomed from birth.
Even his uncle could not protect him from his fate.

Sounds like the whole family needs genetic counseling.

We are sorry, but we will not be renewing the research grant. We will not be able to fund any further research, due to the 3rd generation subject's demise from lead poisoning before he could produce a 4th generation test subject. This genetic line has reached a dead end.

Off Topic-Anyone know where this Sgt V of CTA Special Employment came from? Which Alderman or Reverend made phone calls for this nightmare? Talking to her is like talking to a 6 year old child! Yellow hair from botched dye job, wears Blk Eddie Bauer boots up to here knees while working in uniform, walks in late everyday, while the blue shirts wait and wait!!!talks to guys on the job with 35 years like they just came from the academy!!who is her juice, the straight time pay or even double time pay is not worth the aggravation.

Seems that not only is lead the common contributing factor but also Funny Name Syndrome.
You have Eurel, Antwone, & Myrtis. Anthony seems was an anomally, that happens time to time.
Funny names bring misfortune.
Just look at your president and your mayor.
No good can come from a funny spell't name.

Sad ... But im pissed about this soda tax! And no Peep about casinos. Rahm jacked up the taxes so now the casino will be all profit. ALL profit and the FOP was so eager to sign waivers of payment crying about that is the best we can get.

So let us see how quick our pension fund stolen cash is returned.

Let us see when the city decide to settle up with police,fire and teachers.

SO Dean what is the next step?

As usual "Only from the minds of SCC" do we see the truth! "It's a family thing, black lies matter you would not understand!" it starts at home, and this is what they end up with! Look at their leaders sharpton (Criminal owes 5 million to IRS and he walks in and out of the white house freely Capone went to prison for about $40,000 in unpaid taxes), Jackson never had a job but extorts how much? Son gets biggest budweiser franchise for free! Flaky never touched cardinal scared of him! Right is wrong wrong is now right let's hope and pray Trump rights this severely sinking ship!

...Police said two suspects tried to break into the home north of downtown St. Louis twice before the shooting on Thursday. On the third try, authorities said the unidentified teen went through the home's unlocked front door while the 11-year-old and a 4-year-old girl were home alone. Police said the younger boy shot the teen in the head. The would-be burglar's body was found in the home's front foyer.

Investigators said no one else was hurt in the incident. The second suspect fled the scene after the shooting, but was later taken into custody.

Good shootin'!

Of course now the want to charge to mom.

Sgt. V is an ex CPS teacher. Totally useless, recommended by another goofy Sgt. already there. You are out of your mind if you work special under her direct supervision. Others have already caught on to her antics. Many times she will only have one or two people show up. She then wonders why. Her dog died and she took it upon herself to go home one day while working. Trouble is, A couple of P.O.'s were involved in a traffic accident that day and she was nowhere to be found.

Someone should draw a "Where's Dean?" book.
Only Dean needs to be really short with a shirt and tie.

I have been working CTA for the last 25 plus years and have never worked for a completely clueless Sgt like VM. Sgt VM shows up with a uniform that looks like she found it in a dumpster and has yet to wash it. Her leather gear is so worn out and unserviceable that it looks like relics from the civil war. The boots she wears look horrible and they should be burned immediately. I made a few calls and found out that she is of all things a "Merit" Sgt. Her nominator is none other than the legendary singing and preaching Captain(former commander) Penelope of 020. Now that explains why Sgt VM is the way she is.

Have some pride in your appearance VM. The LT should send you home for not being in proper uniform,
