Stop murdering people near my apartment

Dave sent this link to me the other day:

I know you, you're too lazy to click it. I'll give you the gist.

Basically, two guys got shot multiple times at the McDonald's IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD. Three blocks from my apartment. They both drove themselves to the hospital, but one died.

Sad, I know. But do I live in Cabrini? No. South side? No. I live in freakin' River North.

What is the neighborhood coming to??

I usually only have to worry about an invasion of tourists and fanny packs in my neighborhood. Not a flurry of gunfire. (The jury's still out on which I'd rather deal with.) Luckily, the shooting occurred at 4:15 AM so neither I nor anyone normal was out at that hour.

I guess River North is the new Hyde Park...?

fanny packs are scary. so is the rainforest cafe.

but mcdonalds draws a strange crowd. even if it is rock and roll mcdonalds. plus there's that weird hotel over there that looks pretty shady....

Hi! Thanks for adding me as a friend on 20somethings. I'm loving your blog, from the few I've read so far I'm pretty sure we could be good friends if we lived closer. Anyhoo...I'll be back and you should stop by my blog sometime and say hello.

As I've always been one to state: you live in a city. And really, there is no safe neighborhood. Always be alert. Always know your surroundings. And hopefully 99.9% of the time, it won't matter.

On a lighter note (if one exists), couldn't they have at least picked a better restaurant??!!
