Chicago 2016's Next Move

By The Beachwood Civic Pride Affairs Desk

Now that Chicago 2016's Olympic bid has been smacked down worse than Lindsay Lohan's debut at Fashion World in Paris, many commentators are musing about how to keep the local organizing committee together and redirect its mission toward something good and not evil. Here are some of our suggestions .

* Chicago's Checkbook 2016. Dedicated to balancing the city's budget within seven years.

* Chicago 20-16. Balance the city's budget by letting the remaining money in the bank ride the next time the Bears' line is 3 1/2.

* Chicago 20/20. Dedicated to finding a vision for the city that isn't about Daley cronies cashing in.

* Chicago 16 to 20. Dedicated to imposing this new sentencing guideline to all city employees convicted of mail fraud.

* Chicago Cubs 2016. Dedicated to winning a World Series on the North Side within seven seasons.

* Chicago $2,016. Dedicated to exposing the aldermen who can bought for this paltry sum.

* Chicago 3016. Any Olympic organizing committee can have a bad century.

* Cleveland 2020. Even they can do better than 18 first-round votes.

* Blago 2016. He'll be out of prison by then and running for mayor.

* Chicago 2018. There's always the Winter Olympics.


Your suggestions welcome.
