Jeremiah Wright believes — as he’s claimed in the past — that he and President Barack Obama will be buddies again when he’s out of office, the firebrand preacher didn’t do himself any favors Wednesday. Speaking at a breakfast co-hosted by the Chicago Teachers Union to commemorate Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday, Wright said that while the civil rights leader proclaimed “I have a dream,” Obama says, “I have a drone.” Wright, Obama’s former pastor, called for King’s “revolution of values” and a rejection of the “three-headed demon” of “racism, militarism and capitalism” ...

The others were a 73-year-old man sitting on a stoop with a friend, a 34-year-old man getting ready to celebrate his brother's birthday, and a 20-year-old woman in a "domestic" incident. Saturday night's shooting incidents started about 5:45 p.m. and the pace didn't relent well into Sunday morning. The locations stretched from Rogers Park, blocks from the city's border with north suburban Evanston, south to the 12400 block of South Lowe Avenue in the West Pullman neighborhood.
