Chicago As College Town.....

a: Chicago ~
b: the college town everybody want to stay in

What: "Chicago is like the college town that everybody wants to stay in because it nurtures all the good things about grown up life, city life. Think of comedy, and the lingering allegiance of the greatest, smartest funnypeople of the last many years, starting with the Second City crowd (a big, rowdy, jostling crowd, at that). Think of journalism, science, educational philosophy, and my favorite kind of theater, corrupt politics. Who brought us that household word, "Blagojevich"? None other than Chicago."

Chicago As Small City

a: Chicago ~
b: Hoboken

What: "Chicago is like Hoboken. Everyone there claims that it is better than New York, and "liveable" and "upscale" and all these great adjectives, but no one is listening, because they are in Hoboken."

Politcally Speaking

a: Chicago ~
b: California

What: "Your points are all valid. But Chicago's dynamic economy and enjoyable city life (away from the South Side and parts of the West Side) have given the corrupt politicians/rulers and their fiscal insanity cover. No doubt, the city and the state are on the road to bankruptcy and oblivion. In that regard, Chicago is like California and, to a lesser degree, New York/New Jersey: on the surface, everything looks good, and it's easy to get suckered by the mirage that all is well. It's only when you look beyond the surface that you see that big trouble is on its way." This is a pithy comment about spending money by local governments.

Little Poland

a: Chicago ~
b: a tour of Poland

What: "A stroll along North Milwaukee Avenue in Chicago is like a tour of Poland, but you don't need a passport or visa in "Little Warsaw" because it has been transplanted on the north side of Chicago. The smell of Polish food is in the air, there's plenty of happy spirits, and several unique ethnic shops"

a: Chicago college football ~
b: Articles of Confederation

What:

"Chicago college football is like the United States government under the Articles of Confederation after the revolution and before the ratification at the constitutional convention in 1787. It's a loosely conjoined band of competing interests and factions with no strong central authority. And the passion for college football here seems less than it actually is because it's broken into four pieces."
