Stressful? That's Just Silly
- According to Forbes.com: "With 7.3% unemployment and a gallon of gas going for just under four bucks, the Windy City has some economic headwinds that result in a perfect storm for stress. Chi-town’s pollution problems (it ranked No. 7 in terms poor air quality) and lack of breathing room (it's No. 2 in terms of population density) couple to create a Midwestern Molotov cocktail of stress."
- ...Mayor Daley was asked about the Forbes ranking Chicago high in stress.
"I can attest to that,'' Daley said citing his daily questioning from the media.
But he dismissed the ranking as "laughable.''
No mention of the climbing homicide rate, skyrocketing shootings and questionable tracking of property crimes. A pension system about to crumble, $400 million in budget "shortfalls" and an apathetic police force working 15 months without a contract. It's all just "laughable." What a clown.
