A Matter Of Opinion

My kind of town, Chicago is…

Watching the cable news personalities report on Chicago’s elimination as host city for the 2016 Summer Olympics looks almost satirical in their shocked disbelief. (“I did not see this one coming,” one of them just gasped.) 

Especially after the president and Oprah — OPRAH! — made personal appeals in Copenhagen! Anybody but me think the vote may have been a show of resentment over the powerplay and the air of entitlement?
