While Chicago's 500 homicides in 2012 are a drop off from previous years, the figure is still startling and unfortunate. Eight days into 2013, things are not looking much brighter for the windy city, as NBC Chicago has reported that 13 homicides were reported in the first six days of the new year. Should that pace sustain for the remainder of the year, the city would have its highest murder total since 1997. [Read More]

President Barack Obama has had a tradition since entering political office. He plays pickup basketball in his hometown of Chicago every Election Day. Obama sent out an email recently to get a couple of his buddies together, like former Duke Blue Devil Reggie Love, to organize a game of ball. Former White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said of the ritual: “We made the mistake of not playing basketball once. We won’t make that mistake again.” The President lost the 2008 New Hampshire primary to Hilary Clinton because he didn't play a game of hoops. We would pay good money to hear the POTUS talk trash in a game of 21. Streetball is an American tradition.

Capone bought the home at the height of his power in 1928 for just $40,000. Last year, Peter Corsell, founder of the energy solutions conglomerate Grid Point, bought it for $5.65 million with the intention of fully restoring it to its original gangster grandeur. Enjoy.
