It's a curious response. I know it's code for something, but I'm not sure what. I mean, of all the cities to compare Chicago to, why Detroit? Why not, oh, I don't know, Minneapolis or Seattle or Toronto?
If so, what exactly has Mayor Daley done to keep Chicago from becoming Detroit?
For that matter, are there parts of Chicago that actually are like Detroit?
If so, why hasn't Mayor Daley helped them?
