One citizen's take on the Dick that makes Chicago tick.


Monday, June 22, 2009


A Tribune reader has a great idea for how Mayor Daley can pay for his Olympics:
Olympic Bid Committee Chairman Patrick Ryan, backed up by Mayor Richard Daley, insists the city's financial risk for taking full financial responsibility for the 2016 Olympics is extremely remote (Daley ups the ante for 2016 Olympics).

If Ryan and Daley truly believe this, then they should have no problem pledging their personal wealth toward the Games. Come on, Mr. Ryan and Mayor Daley -- sign a contract that says before any city money beyond the existing guarantees is spent on the Olympics, your own money will be spent.
Since they are so confident the Chicago Olympics won't come in over budget, this shouldn't be a problem for them, right? And don't tell me you can't afford it Dick, I know that's a lie. Just look under your mattress.
