“I can’t believe you’re going out. You must be the most wanted criminals in Chicago history.”
“It’s an honor we worked hard to win.”
“Want a scoop to bring back to the newsroom?”
“Already got one.”
“We’re here because you blew people up. People who worked for you. No wonder everyone’s joining unions.”
