Chicago:Newspaper vendor shot to death Tuesday morning

(Chicago Man/Flickr)CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) - A newspaper street vendor was shot and killed Tuesday near a Dan Ryan Expressway off-ramp on the South Side.

The man, believed to be in his 30s was in the 800 block of West 99th when he was shot about 5:50 a.m., said police News Affairs Officer John Mirabelli.

The man was selling food and Chicago Sun-Times newspapers to passing motorists at an intersection near the off-ramp, Mirabelli said. The Sun-Times contracts with an outside vendor for single-copy newspaper sales.

Two black males were seen fleeing the area after the shooting, Mirabelli said.

The man's death was confirmed by the Cook County Medical Examiner's office, which did not immediately have any additional information as of about 9 a.m.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
