Chicago is a finalist for the 2016 Olympics, meaning you have until October of 2009 to push your request for “thing that makes us look unworthy of the Olympics that we need to fix now.” Suggestions: public transportation, school athletic facilities, Mayor Daley’s unsettling grimace-smile, the fact that presumptive Democratic nominee Barack Obama isn’t Northwestern’s commencement speaker, Ozzie Guillen. Me, I have it on good word that Todd Stroger ran over Jacques Rogge‘s kid’s bike and didn’t even leave a note.
