There was a domestic homicide in Chicago's Burnside district on Sunday. At least it wasn't over something trivial.

Two as-yet unnamed men, a 22-year old and his 43-year old father, had a disagreement over who l should walk the dog. The disagreement escalated and both of them pulled their gats. When the lead stopped flying the son was mortally wounded. The father (who was either tougher or a better shot) is in critical condition. The dog was so badly scared by the gunfire that he shit on the rug, but with all the blood probably nobody much cared. (OK, I just made that last sentence up.)

Chicago is currently running about two homicides by gunfire a day.

I've seen people killed over a quarter left for the next game on a pool table. I've also seen them shit themselves when caught.
