Known for the deep-dish pizza, huge buildings, and lively sports scene, the state of Chicago is sadly in a political mess. The city is unfortunately also famous for its high crime rates and fiscal woes. In the last few decades, the other cities have come out of the problems in the political system, but Chicago was not that lucky. The town is still stuck in an old political system where the mayor is the king and can make it hard to address different issues.
In his recent release, Austin Berg shed some light on the current situation of the city. He said the problems are not on the surface only, but they are deep-rooted in every system.

CHICAGO (WLS)—A Chicago priest convicted of sexually abusing a minor more than 20 years ago will be released on Sunday.
Father William McFarlane served at the Nativity of Our Lord and the parish of St. Gabriel in Bridgeport. In a letter to the parishioners, Cardinal Blase Cupich wrote that both civil and archdiocesan officials had investigated the allegations and found them unfounded.
"As Father McFarlane takes on a new assignment, which we predict will soon be announced, I ask you to keep him in your prayers, aware of the many ways in which he has contributed to the lives of those he has served," Cupich said.
You can see the letter sent by Cardinal Cupich below.
Dear Parishioners of the Nativity of Our Lord and of the Parish of St. Gabriel,
In July, I informed you of the charges of sexual abuse against your former pastor, Father William McFarlane. In accordance with our protocols, he was asked to step away from effective ministry until a thorough investigation and review could be concluded. During those inquiries, he cooperated fully with the civil authorities and the Archdiocese of Chicago.
Following a finding by State officials charged with protecting minors that the allegation was unfounded, the Independent Review Board of the Archdiocese of Chicago examined the matter in accordance with our usual procedures. At its meeting on Saturday, 26 October 2019, the Board found that there was insufficient reason to suspect that Father McFarlane had committed sexual abuse. Therefore, I restore Father McFarlane to active ministry, effective immediately. As Father McFarlane begins a new assignment, which we anticipate will soon be announced, I ask you to keep him in your prayers, aware of the many ways in which he has contributed to the lives of those he has served.

"This family photo was such a struggle because Chicago was so afraid of Dino!" Kardashian said on Twitter and Instagram.
"We tried to explain to tell her that it was just daddy, but she didn't get the idea yet! But shout out to the photographer for filming her and having our Flinstone family dream come true!"
Although the reality star seemed grateful to the photo editing, not everyone thought the photographer was doing a good job of making the family's "dreams come true." Baby Chicago seemed a little out of place. A part of her foot was missing to be precise.
"You have to hire a new editor said one person on Twitter.
