Chiraq: 17 dead and at least 41 wounded over weekend

Author at Wrigley Field
The first World Series played on Chicago's North Side in 71 years didn't do much to cool passions in Chiraq, where as last weekend, when the Chicago Cubs clinched the pennant, things were a bit more quiet.

But this weekend 17 people were shot to death, including four teens, of of those four three were murdered in neighborhoods not known for carnage--Old Town and Archer Heights. There were at least 41 others wounded over the same time period.
