    On memorial day this year, a dog fighting ring was discovered in downtown Chicago.

    As the dust settles, those who love dogs, and, I imagine, the surviving dogs curse and moan. These dogs blame those dogs. He blames the ASPCA & the Canine Police. She blames the neighbors and the dog treats. They even blame Sarah McLachlan.
    They complain and complain.

    Those who don't love dogs say Poof! Look. I have a cat. My cats don't fight. There's no problem here. Who cares. I never saw a Cat Fighting Ring in my life! I sure heard some hissing though. There's too much fuss about these dangerous dogs.
    They complain and complain.

    They complain about each other. Some take sides and blame Chihuahuas. Some blame Great Danes. Some dogs just show up and bark.
    They complain and complain.

    As two eagles fly over, one says to the other, "Why are those dogs starting a fight over dogs fighting?"

  • Thanks Ro,
    Given my experience working on gang and crime issues in Bridgeport, I feel AAC's comment is ill-informed.
    In the immediate area surround my home the gang, and corresponding drug issues, center on houses that have no Section 8 or CHA connections. Each of the "trouble" properties are owned by individuals who own and manage multiple properties in Chicago while living outside of Cook County. If anything, Bridgeport has an Absentee Landlord problem.
