The Day Has Arrived

I am referring, of course, to the 87th anniversary of the St. Valentine's Day Massacre.  Five members of Bugs Moran's North Side gang and two collaborators were gunned down in a Chicago warehouse.  Moran was en route to the warehouse and missed being one of the victims by only a few minutes.  Al Capone's South Side gang is widely believed to have been responsible, though the shooters were never apprehended.

I leave you with Chet Baker's rendition of "My Funny Valentine":
