They can't even keep up one of the most famous places in the city. I always thought of Chicago as one of the most corrupt city govts. How many years have the Daly's run that city anyway? How much money have they gotten at taxpayer's expense ? They won't even build a new football stadium. They are just rennovating the relic Soldier's Field I believe.
I would hate to live there but visited it once and liked it.
No kidding. Wrigley is a treasure. If they can't keep it up, what in the hell are they spending their money on?
Of all the types of tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.-C.S. Lewis
