CHICAGO (CBS) – How often do we wake up to a story in the news that is so good our hearts thump and our eyes are smiling the whole rest of the day?

What a wonderful thing to happen to me today: the story in the Chicago Sun-Times, that COPS NAB 120 IN WAR ON GANG, after gangbangers on the Northwest Side fired bullets into two little children.

The police declared war on bangers of the Maniac Latin Disciples and in two weeks rounded up ten dozen of them -– two dozen locked up, the rest on bond.

So the story now is a question: Will the state’s attorney try to lock ‘em all up? Will the state’s attorney help the police, encourage the police to go after more gangbangers to get those bleeps off the streets? 

That’s what we need: local and federal prosecutors to do what we pay them to do — make where we live safe to live.

How beautiful it would be to wake up to a story about 120 gangbangers banged into cells.
