No. Really. Chicago IS the new New York

Tankboy was on to something. With NYC out of the running for the 2012 Olympics, Mayor Daley is picking up the slack and starting some of the preliminary work to put in a bid for the 2016 Olympics.

See? He does some good stuff. Sometimes. Unless you hate the Olympics. And lots of tourists. Then this news sucks.

    I think it’s a great idea, but I always wonder what happens after it’s over. Some cities end up in a deeper hole financially after the games than they were before. It’s called the Post-Olympic Depression…both financial and psychological.
