I have friends who are from The Region who are constantly telling me how awesome Chicago is, and how it’s the best city in blah blah blah and oh it’s so great. I get tired of hearing this, because frankly, Chicago is kind of lame. Sure, they have the Field Museum which is easily one of the top five most bitchin’ museums on God’s green Earth, but other than that, I’m not really impressed.
But you know what really kills me? Chicago, land of the total gun ban, has a murder rate that is 3 times higher than the rest of the country, and 6 times higher than the rest of the state.
When you couple that with the fact that it just can’t compare with a city like Seattle or Boston, Chicago really doesn’t have a whole lot to offer me.
