    Don't know what you mean by "doesn't disprove the larger point whatever that is".

    In the US, murder rates are concentrated within a very small percentage of counties and in small areas within those particular counties and YES, Chicago is a prime example. Over half of our murders occur in 2% of our counties. I know that you are not a John Lott fan, but check out this link any way ... AND with an open mind. The data was compiled from multiple sources and Chicago is spotlighted,

    A reader writes: Work on the Dearborn/Polk mansion is stalled? Walls are now being put up. We assume the reader was referring to another post we had about a month ago when another reader questioned whether or not this project stalled. Judging by the photo, seems like work is moving ahead as planned.
