Taxis, iPods & Bergoff's - Friday, February 23, 2007

Someone should mention that the steel of taxis and flesh of people do not mix. The commuter figured it out. The taxi driver drove on, but not until after having his hood pounded by a very angry woman.

They were both guilty. One was an iPoder, blind to the moment. The other was chasing time, barrelling too fast for Adams Street.

Speaking of Adams. I miss Bergoff's. 107 years of good food. I just heard they have reopened in some way. Trader Vic's is gone too.

Chicago’s Bid For 2016 Olympics Heats Up in US Home Stretch
That's big news. Big, big news. If Daley and company pulls it off, I think we'll see him as mayor for life. We'll also see some city pride that does not involve a baseball team. I can imagine the Olympic Marathon running on Michigan, Wacker and Ohio. Would they take it around all the town, including the Projects? the NYC Marathon does that, through all boroughs.
