Maybe it was my fate to tour the murder capitals of the United States. I decided at 9 this morning to be there for the Chicago Marathon on Sunday and the elimination of the Cubs on either Saturday or Sunday.

It won't come easy. I will be having breakfast in Detroit. If I make it that far, I will be in Gary, Indiana sometime in the afternoon. Detroit is a four-time winner of the prestigious Moran Quitno Most Dangerous City in America (1999-2001, 2003). Gary is a two-time winner of this, achieving this distinction in 1997-98. In the previous year's rankings, Detroit was the runner-up, while Gary placed a respectable 10th.
