    “The Newlywed Game” is on the television. Julia Rhoden, 53, is sitting on her bed, exhausted from another long day at the health care center where she works as a nurse’s aide. There is a loud boom and then another and another. She feels a sting as a bullet enters her back. “I been shot! I been shot!” she cries out to her children in the next room, as blood soaks through the summer dress she wears as a nightgown.

    That same night, 15-year-old Veronica Lopez is hit as she rides in a Jeep that is speeding along a waterfront drive. “Babe, they shot me in the stomach,” the girl tells a friend, who later says he covered her body with his own as the gunfire continued.

    “Help, I’ve been shot!” another teenager screams as he limps down a darkened street, a bullet having torn through his leg.

    It is Friday night in Chicago, and the Memorial Day weekend is just getting started.

    This is all the fault of those damned racist Republicans who run that city.

    :rip2: Tag changed to political. It's not political though, the piece only documents what happened over 1 weekend. Insanity.

    Chicago's not an island. They don't grow guns on trees there either. Where do you think the guns are coming from?
