As a life-long Chicagoan and first-generation Italian-American, I foudn this article "did nothing for me" as well.
Is it me, or has the Tribune's reporting standards dropped?
"Italian Kid:#^*$@(*&# your mother."
This might be something common for people on the East Coast, but we Chicagoans, especially within the Italian community, do not go around talking like that. Chicagoans are a bit more respectful of each other than their East Coast counterparts. I assure you, if I or anyone else here went around saying that (and I'm 23), we'd probably be in a wheelchair for life.
Secondly, zeppole aren't "Italian donuts." Donuts have holes in them. If Mr. Borrelli ever had a zeppole, he could give a better description in that they're a creme-filled pastry.
Mr Borrelli, I'm sure you were up all night writing this the day hours before deadline trying to compare Chicagoans with East Coast Italians. Next St. Joseph's day, could Chicago's Italian-American community get a better article for it's signature festival day?

Actually you are wrong. Zeppole vary depending on region. They are indeed like a doughnut. Looks like one thing is the same. Italians are cry babies from coast to coast. Oh Italians.
