FILE - In this Nov. 25, 2013 file photo, U.S. Senators Dick Durbin, D-Ill., left, and Mark Kirk, R-Ill., speak at a joint news conference in Chicago. Both Durbin and Kirk have proposed naming the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives in Washington after Prohibition-era crime fighter Eliot Ness, but a prominent Chicago alderman and others point to evidence that Ness’ role in the demise of Chicago mobster Al Capone was as mythical as Mrs. O’Leary’s cow starting the Great Chicago Fire and are trying to convince the senators to drop the whole thing. The senators are not backing down, though, insisting he deserves it anyway.
