Chicago's Olympic Chances

Jimmie Markham passes along news from the Chicago Sun-Times and Chicago is the leading candidate to win the 2016 Summer Olympics. Cited are “a strong infrastructure of hotels and transportation, a city-centered venue plan and an effective marketing scheme.” Not cited but impossible to ignore: in the time zones for NBC, which poured $3.5 billion into the IOC's coffers.

I'm pulling for Chicago because it's a short train ride from Toledo. I should start saving my money now.
