I usually enjoy reading Rick Morissey of the Chicago Tribune, but this is a head-scratcher.
I do know that Chicago needs something to feel good about, to unite over, to agree on. I’m quite certain that ‘‘something’’ isn’t blue-light cameras. London struggles with the same issues we do — crime, the economy, poverty — and heading into the Olympics, many people here thought playing host to the Games was a colossal mistake. In almost three weeks here, I couldn’t find one person who held that view. That’s because, done right, the Olympics transform a city.
The Olympics just ended Sunday. I'm probably just fretting over semantics, but I'd say we should wait awhile before we start talking about a transformation.
