    in the Chicago Public School System, we were taught that this was one of the "seven engineering wonders of the world" and it was a super big deal that Chicago was very proud of -- the city of big shoulders , so big and powerful that we could reverse the flow of a goddamn river if we want to.  

    Oh, and you forgot that they dye the river green every St. Paddy's day!

    Go Bernie Sanders! You are what a politician should be!

      Romney is campaigning to be President SuperBain; his cure is to cut wages, end pensions, let companies go bankrupt, and let the assets of production go dark or be sold to China. He really thinks thats the best of all possible Americas.
