Glad to know that our economy is growing faster than other peers. However, the violent crime seems to be on the rise. Hopefully, Daley & Weis will try to keep it under the control. It's very important because we're bidding to host the Olympics.

"FAST COMPANY has named it U.S. City of the Year, recognizing not its past but its present -- and its future -- as a place where there's room to stretch. Chicago has given America social investing and the stories of Stuart Dybek and Aleksander Hemon. It has been greening itself since long before it became trendy, and it has been dancing, too -- this is the home of house music, Wilco, and Lupe Fiasco. Here, in the birthplace of the American skyscraper, Santiago Calatrava is redefining the form with his Spire, while at the Art Institute, Renzo Piano is building a $300 million addition. The economy is growing faster than New York's or L.A.'s."

^^If Chicago gets the title 2 or 3 times in a row then I'll say they had something to do with it. This is the first so I think Chicago deserves a little more credit than that.:lol:
