way to go Chicago!
love to see those shot killed and wounded numbers going up.
the numbers going up creates lots more interest in Our exclusive "total Chicago killed and wounded in 2013 contest ".
Still lots of time to get your estimate and entry fee into our contest headquarters and you can enter as often as you wish.
Based on the over whelming interest and enthusiasm for this years contest we will be announcing plans for a all new 2014 shot killed and wounded contest in early January 2014 so keep posted for news about that contest.
Thanks for your support and participation.

any chance these black killings will be featured in the black history section of the paper next year?
This is a special blacks only achievement. Remember Blacks with guns kill more blacks in chicago than does cancer, working or holding a job, listening to obozo speeches, traffic accidents, riding the CTA , going to the library, mugging old unarmed shoppers in da city, or any of the other special events black enjoy in da city on a daily basis.
I think blacks should be recognized, singled out for the killing wounding of other blacks in the city.
If nothing else Chicago area funeral directors on da south side of da city should be giving black gunmen a special black tie awards dinner at the end of the year to recognize the high death rate among blacks in da city.
I hope your paper will consider these recommendations.
