August was Chicago’s deadliest month in twenty years. Police count 90 murders and 384 shootings. The police union is urging cops to stay home and avoid overtime work this holiday weekend; Police superintendent Eddie Johnson tells the Tribune he’s sure staffing levels will be adequate over the holiday … Donald Trump talked about a deportation task force and making Mexico pay for a border wall … Mexico’s president tweeted that he told Trump Mexico would not be paying for a wall … Pope Francis wants to add care for the environment to the Church’s traditional seven works of mercy … More American adults are smoking pot, and fewer think it’s a problem, according to research from the National Institutes of Health … The Cubs beat the Pirates … the White Sox lost in Detroit … Some scattered showers this morning … then partly sunny and a high in the low-70s.
