  • Bank of America employees on their way to the office

Crain’s Chicago Business reports again on NATO summit partisans’ efforts to satirize themselves before protesters get the chance next weekend. Yesterday it was an article giving voice to Chicago tourism boosters, who expressed their desire to introduce foreign journalists to 50 “real Americans”—presumably political agnostics—who will provide them with home-cooked meals. What’s on the menu? For security reasons, that information went undisclosed. But speaking of security, today Crain’s reports on tips for downtown dwellers and office workers wishing to pass the protests unnoticed: “Tenants in the office building at 1 E. Wacker Drive received a memo encouraging them to stay away from wearing suits, urging workers to ‘look like a protester.’ . . . At 1 S. Wacker Drive, tenants are being urged to ‘dress down’ in order to blend with protesters, and also cautioned against wearing items or carrying bags with corporate logos.”
