    I just don't really have the luxury of being on a computer to correct so many misconceptions except the crime bit. Chicago is not going through "skyrocketing" crime rates. The opposite is true. All crime categories are trending down at historic levels. Chicago has a homicide rate comparable to or lower than Dallas, Indianapolis, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Miami, DC and much lower than the usual suspects (Baltimore, Detroit, St. Louis, Oakland, Kansas City,...).
