Daley In Beijing: Let's Hope He Stays
I especially liked how the article described him as being in "the bowels of the city." He must have felt right at home there. Apparently, he's being treated like a "rock star." Sadly, that rock star doesn't appear to be Jim Morrison or Jimi Hendrix.
A month's salary says he'll come back here and start demanding expensive upgrades to the CTA system, which will naturally fall on our taxpaying backs.
The upside to all this is that if we go through all this trouble and expense and put ourselves in the poorhouse, and Chicago doesn't get the Olympics, he and his mottled, purple face will get bundled out of town faster than Baby Doc Duvalier.
It's too bad they can't decide BEFORE we throw ourselves into hock.
