I haven’t been paying especially close attention to local politics recently, in part because of the presidential race, in part because of brainfreeze issues, but you should read Ben Joravsky’s latest post over at Clout City. But before doing so, take a moment and make a little over/under bet with yourself on whether the demolition and cleanup of the Michael Reese Hospital site will cost 1) less 2) more than was estimated just a few short weeks ago. If you’re feeling gutsy, guess the percentage by which the estimate was off. Okay? Go.
(Don’t tell Oprah or Michael Phelps I told you, though–wouldn’t want to get on their bad side.)
