Priorities, Please

This just in…while a controversy is brewing over Chicago’s crime numbers (a curious drop in crime has led some to believe the police department is “cooking the books,”) the city’s aldermen have taken a drastic measure to improve the quality of life for residents.  Since the real scourge on the city is plastic bags, they have joined many other cities in passing a ban.  Thank goodness they have their priorities straight.  After all, crime doesn’t kill people, but plastic bags do?

    Broken Windows Theory posits that the environment is indicative of neighborhood decline. If allowed to persist, evidence of neighborhood decline leads to other crime. For instance, allowing one broken window (due to vandalism) invites other vandals to break windows and commit petty crimes. However, as the theory goes, if you fix the window, crack down on vandalism, and maintain a police presence, the petty criminals and vandals won’t feel welcome.

    So, the moral of the story is that policy should pick up all the plastic bags littering the streets and not allow any more to be sold. If those measures are taken, crime will fall in Chicago and Illinois will be a better place.

    It could happen… at least in a fairytale!

    The President just said he’s dialing O for O’Malley.
    It has become the quintessential social event of any pre-game festivities and,
    what was originally an underground subculture, is now part of the mainstream sports atmosphere.
    A bigger fridge costs more to run, especially if it’s mostly
    empty (as more cold air escapes when you open it) so if
    you live alone, a fridge which is only a quarter full is costing
    you too much money to run.
