In Chicago, where one of us lives (his name rhymes with Steve — it really, really rhymes with Steve), there’s all this big talk about getting the Olympics to come here sometime in the far distant future (it’s either 2016 or 2160, we forget). Every day you read about the Mayor going to a meeting somewhere or the plans that need to be made.
