Chicago killing spree continues. Will Rahm take credit for the lack of progress?


The killing spree continues in Chicago. In August 53 murdered, 224 shot and wounded. But, will the mayor, Rham Emmanuel, who dearly wants to bring his talents back to Washington, DC, be able to do more than wring his hands? So far he seems content to look for scapegoats rather than solutions.

The current death count is available from two sources, RedeyeChicago, which has spreadsheets if you want to do some analysis, and HeyJackass if you want some decent graphs and charts to document the daily tragedies.

A resident of the “30 square miles surrounded by reality,” I spend most of my time teaching economics and statistics to undergraduate students. I enjoy, naturally, economics and business, but also science (I was once an astronomical observatory assistant), politics, photography, food, travel and sports. Madison has grown quite a bit since 1978 when Governor Lee Dreyfus made that remark. According to Wikipedia, Madison is 67.3 square miles of land and 16 square miles of water.
