22 - Something that upsets you

300...

That's the number of murders that there were in Chicago in 2010 on the day I wrote this post. Google it, I bet it's much more now.

That's 1 or 2 murders each and every day and this is just the city. This says nothing of the depressed suburbs like Harvey and Maywood that have just as much violent crime, but in a much smaller area.

Yep, 300 upsets me.
