Chicago way
 n.— «When asked how he could have pulled off such an escape, Mr. Alsammarae, who moved to Chicago in 1976 but returned to Iraq just after the invasion, laughed uproariously for 20 seconds. Then, recycling a famous line from an exchange about Al Capone in “The Untouchables,” Mr. Alsammarae said with undisguised glee: “The Chicago way.”» —“Escaped Minister Says He Fled Iraqi Jail ‘the Chicago Way'” by James Glanz in Baghdad, Iraq New York Times Dec. 20, 2006.
