  • Didn't answer two questions:
    1. Does the royal Stroger family go back the 140 years, like the Windsors?
    2. What's the numbers for the City of Chicago, and State of Illinois? All we hear are that 29 aldercreatures were put away in the past 40 years. Ask your friend Kass for a complete accounting, back to 1837 for the city and 1818 for the state. Kass must know all the political criminal's nicknames.
