No fun and games

A few hundred people participated in a public protest of the city of Chicago’s bid for the 2016 Olympic Games at a downtown rally. Lots of passionate people holding signs that literally spell out their thoughts. Participants at the event, which was held at Federal Plaza in downtown, said the city needs to improve schools, roads and other public services before it spends billions to host the games.

SIDE NOTE: I came across one of the meanest traffic officers on my way to cover this assignment. Here in Chicago, that’s saying something because I have never really come across a traffic officer that was nice. I won’t go into detail, just needed to get that off my chest.
