On May 25, 2001, the Chicago Sun-Times reported that "fifteen thousand Jehovah's Witnesses from across the Midwest are expected to gather at Comiskey Park [in Chicago] for a three-day convention encouraging people to study scripture for themselves. 'We feel while many people have their own religion, much of it has been inherited, and very few people actually know why they are what they are,' said Jesse Graziani, news service representative for the Jehovah's Witnesses."
