I got away last week -- took a trip to a different time zone and forgot all about Chicago.
As absurd as it sounds, I was hoping to come back to learn that my fellow Chicagoans had come to their senses and decided to rebel against the lunacy of staging a multibillion Olympic party while we're going bankrupt.
But, no, the papers tell me that it's full steam ahead on Mayor Daley's Olympic follies, even as he threatens to add police and fire to all the other cutbacks.
It's good to know the resistance lives.
