    What jobs are these kids going to get? College graduates are working at Target and Starbucks. And jobs in their neighborhoods are non-existent. It would help if these neighborhoods were economically and racially integrated to increase the consumer buying power of the area, but what middle income family is going to choose to expose their families to this kind of senseless and unpredictable violence? And it would also help to get more families out of these troubled neighborhoods and into good neighborhoods but what area will welcome families from Englewood or Austin when the perception is that everyone is a gangbanger there (although clearly that is not the case)?

    This is a great idea. Illinois, the county, the city needs to scrutinize the paperwork that government employees and vendors are submittimg.

    Every department jas a significant % of false paperwork goimg on. Ot costs taxpayers billions im waste!

    Lets hope this catches on and every departmemt gets forensic audits of their paperwork. We meed efficiency reports too!
