Chicago Looses Again.

The Chicago Reader can bite it. I don't know what about being a good liberal forces you to come out against a little bit of international recognition. I understand it's a lot of money, and yeah, the money is better spent elsewhere, but, hey, every time money is spent it's always money better spent elsewhere. So that argument doesn't get anywhere with me.

The benefits of hosting the Olympics far outweigh any political argument against such a thing. This isn't an issue or politics or principal, it's an issue of hometown pride, or in my case, regional pride. And let's get to that, regional pride. The Olympics was not a Chicago only thing.

The great city of Milwaukee was ready to roll out the red carpet, spruce up our city, build a high speed rail from here to Madison and down to Chicago, build new affordable housing, make nice old existing housing, do a bunch of shit at the lakefront. Our great, heroic mayor said today Olympics or no Olympics, we're gonna go ahead and do this anyway. See in Milwaukee, we stay winning, it doesn't matter what they do down south.

And speaking of loosing, let's take a look at some of these photos.

What is she gonna do with her three day weekend?

Look at him, it's like this is the first disappointment of his life. Does he not follow the Cubs?
