Unable to get its way, Chicago smashes all its toys and goes home

The Gropius in Chicago Coalition reports that Chicago has finally acknowledged Walter Gropius's role in designing the Michael Reese campus, and has therefore decided to save... one building.

Yeah.

I still don't get it. Did all those fancy words during the Olympic bid about Chicago's great cultural heritage mean nothing?

Yes, now they want to suddenly discuss preservation. Nothing this city does ever makes sense except when it comes to the great big hustle for cash for the connected.

I am really disappointed in Toni Preckwinkle over this.
