Some Disguise

Steven Chapman tells us that 2016 Olympics not being awarded to Chicago is a "blessing in disguise." If that's so, the disguise wasn't very effective. I don't know of a single Chicagoan not trying to ride a gravy train who wanted Chicago to host the Olympics.

I'm with you on this one, too. Every Chicagoan I knew personally complained about the idea of the Olympics, often vehemently. It was frankly a bit disturbing to see how the Trib beat the drum in favor for months, and then only after the Great Snub, revealed the existence of an organized group of citizens opposed.
