Event: I support the Chicago 2016 Olympic Bid.

At the end of the day, this is a great city, and it is events like these that make cities great. In the late 1800s Chicago suffered a devastating fire that tore it to its foundations, and less than twenty years later, it dreamed up the skyscraper, gave the lake to the public, and invited the world in for the Columbian Exposition.

There is much that is wrong with Chicago, naturally; that is true for all cities. But I think that the world and Chicago itself will learn and benefit from this choice. It is, after all, "the city on the lake where the embers never fade." The logo itself suggests embers to me.
