The Chicago Way

They say that the current national political scene owes a great deal to the influence of the so-called Democratic "machine politics" of Chicago, Illinois, long known as "The City That Works." A precursor of this modus operandi can be found in the 1987 movie The Untouchables, starring Kevin Costner as FBI Agent Elliot Ness, Robert De Niro as arch-nemesis Al Capone, and Sean Connery as the near-to-retirement beat cop who signs on to help the former bring down the latter.

Connery. De Niro. Who could ask for more? This video is the creation of ... well, some guy whose work can be found here and/or here.

By the way, say what you will, but I've been to Chicago three times. It's still MY KIND OF TOWN!
