Anthony Burgess did it much better in his classic A Clockwork Orange. But you get the point. Consider Chicago the first stop of your summertime tour of America’s “Clockwork Orange” cities. Chicago — where the adults have given way to the kids, feral in behavior, who take to the streets to assault passersby, vandalize property, steal, and, least but not last, bully luckless citizens. The list of cities will lengthen, assuredly.
The nation may be in for a long, hot summer of urban street violence.
