Chicago's West Side Immune to Suicide

I have to be honest, I haven't followed this business with Isiah and an alleged overdose closely. It started on Friday with reports that someone had been taken in an ambulance from Isiah's home with an apparent overdose. Was it Isiah? Was it his daughter? Was it Rick Mahorn? Who knows.

However, one thing is certain: Isiah did not attempt suicide. Why? Isiah's friend and former teammate Mark Aguirre has the answer.
"We grew up on the West Side of Chicago," Aguirre said. "Ain't no more down than that . . . You'd never get me to believe that, not the way we fought all our lives just to survive."

There you have it folks. Don't want to commit suicide? Worried you might commit suicide? Move to the West Side of Chicago and test your will to live. Hell, I'm thinking about getting on the Belmont bus tonight and seeing where I stand.

Judging by the news these days, you don't have to get on the bus. Logan Square is murder central.
