So, Miegs Field is now a nature park. Is this a better use of public property and funds than the small airport? Do the methods used two years ago forever taint the park?
::shrug:: I donna know. I just figured this could use a bump.
I think the whole sleazy ordeal will leave a bad taste in the mouths of most Chicagoans for a long time, but on the other hand, a beautiful nature park can’t be anything but good for a city. I can’t decide whether I like or despise Daley. There is a lot about him that reminds me of his dad. A “my way or the highway” attitude that I hate in almost everyone, but somehow seems to work in the Chicago political scene.
But he was wrong to steal the airport. It was irreplaceable to many. The whole incident was a bit surreal.
