If you have any pride in Chicago (whether or not you oppose the Olympics here), you have to read this goofy editorial from a California newspaper opposing Chicago's 2016 Olympic bid. Blogger Jim Bowman spotted this anti-Chicago rant, and it is really worth reading. Said Jim in his opening shot:
Monterey County Herald? Are you kidding? Why on earth would this hayseed resort county with it's oh-so-wonderful climate
-- average temps 48 to 65, average snowfall .01 inches -- talk this way
about the Second City? Obviously, because its residents are eaten up
with envy. Look at the dumb argument this newspaper makes.
Jim is just warming up; it's really worth a read. Here's the link again.
