HeyJackass! has the stats from the opening of the silly season in Chicago. Memorial Day Weekend

The Summer of Silly Decisions has arrived! Starting this weekend and for the next 100 days, be prepared to experience more silly decisions than one thought possible only this year will be extra silly with the DNC in town in August. And remember, please, no demonizing.

The final tally - from noon Friday to 6 AM Tuesday - was 11 killed, 41 one shot and wounded.

Click thru for comparisons to earlier years, details on what happened when, etc. Also, see my earlier post on the "big brawl" that opened the festivities. Let the games begin.
