    Having been to Chicago, I'd hate too see the other *two* cities that are worse..

    It was icky, dirty, loud, and nobody seemed to give half a shit about anyone but themselves. Add to that the fact that you have some of the worst rush hour traffic I've ever seen (and I thought ours was bad because it lasts 2-3 hours, and you're doing 25 in a 75...)

    No offense, of course. :D

    So, is this what we can expect Obama to do to America...do for it what he did for Chicago, which was apparently nothing?

    Seriously? That's reaching, I think. Most *people* are responsible for the condition their cities are in, and/or deteriorate TO...

    Wisc is even colder than Chicago. And those hills! I'm used to flat, flat. ;)

    I'm surprised you didn't like Chicago, as a visitor I mean. Nearly everyone I've known have a great time visiting. I'm in the Far West burbs and love time in the City. But it's very expensive and taxes are astronomical, worse than here, which is saying a lot. Our state taxes are sky high and going higher. It's ridiculous.

    Once you get to where you're going, it's nice..but getting there AIN'T half the fun. :doubt:

    Stayed in a hotel in downtown Chicago a dozen or so years back.. Was late afternoon, didn't want to go anywhere for dinner..the hotel clerk said there was a Wendy's 3 blocks away..

    It should not have taken more than an hour to travel 3 blocks and back. That's just wrong in every sense of the word.

    Did you drive? Arggg, never drive once you park the car. :lol: As you say, traffic is horrendous and in the Loop so many one way streets. We get down there, park and walk. Of course I have the luxury of not going down after 3 or before 7pm. Rush hour begins here about 6am-9:30, begins again around 2:30-7pm.
