Felony Frank’s Closes

Our apologies if you tried to do a good deed yesterday and patronize Felony Frank’s on our recommendation. At about the same time that we were linking to a Tuesday piece in Austin Weekly News about Felony Franks’ struggles, Chicago Journal was publishing a piece announcing that Felony Franks had, in fact, shut down Wednesday night. We’re sorry about that, but even more sorry that owner Jim Andrews’ plans to aid ex-felons in going straight were doomed by the opposition of an alderman and the neighbors, who will of course be much safer and better off without those jobs for ex-convicts trying to go straight.
