    Can't imagine Chief Keef lives 6 months unless he gets locked up:

    Chief Keef and Lil jojo sound like characters from Captain Kangaroo.

    It appears "killing them with rhymes" is no match for killing them with guns.

    Why not kill them with kindness?

    That's some high-quality newspapering, getting the words 'thuggish' and 'gangster' (x2) and 'deadly' and 'infamous' (x2) into the first two sentences.

    The third sentence is straight outta Evanston.

    I note the absence of a byline. Was this a sidebar to something?

    Get ready for another wave of violence in Chicago by punks. The teachers just went on strike, turning down a 16 percent raise. Cops apparently are out in force.

    16% on average over the life of the contract.

    You could have also said a 3% raise next year.

    After last year's 4% giveback.

    Their average salary is among the highest in the country. Their work day is among the shortest.

    Biggest issues are apparently the re-hiring of laid off teachers, and the issue of teacher evaluations. (They don't want children's test score to factor into evaluations.)
