Quickly...Yes, I'm happy that Chicago didn't get the Olympics, but I'm not happy that so many people are disappointed. Someone on WBEZ said something about wanting the games for the civic pride. I was right there. I wanted to invite the world to our big small town for one hecka party too. But I just didn't think we could do it without hurting us at the same time.
The press keeps asking if there is anyway for us to keep this Chicago love fest going in order to improve our schools, public transit, etc. I sure hope so.
