Despite what you hear, normalcy does exist on the south side of Chicago
I saw Dean this morning at the gym and he just said he is glad he is out of that office. We talked for about 10 minutes while he was doing leg squats with 2 45 plates on each side. For a little guy he is a strong fella. He said he is looking forward to the retired life finally and just getting himself back in shape. He mentioned that in this new retired chapter of his life his goals are to complete a Chicago Marathon and get Dean Jr the security director gig at the new Depaul Arena. He said that he served this city well and honorable and now is the time the city pays him for all these years of locking up bad guys. As I walked away I saw him spotting Mike Lappe doing the bench press. All I could think to myself is wow.
