Chicago Tribune | Daley rips up Meigs runways in surprise raid: Chicago’s Mayor took backhoes and bulldozers to the small lakefront airfield in downtown Chicago in a nighttime suprise strike intended to bring the doctrine of shock and awe home to the Gold Coast, multiple sources report.
Chicagoans, what do you have to say for yourselves? This is political ridiculousness of a scale that can only be described as, well, Chicagoan. As such, I congratulate you for continuing to uphold the great tradition of high entertainment value in political news from your fair city.
Oh, the recriminations will be a thing of beauty! Destroying an airfield in wartime! The airfield that just happens to be the place that the really, really rich use to visit Chi-town! Hilarity will ensue!
