Explaining Chicago's Population Loss

The Census Bureau recently released data showing that Chicago's population in the last decade fell to levels not seen since the 1920s. Why did so many people leave Chicago in the last 10 years? We think we know why.

* They saw Rahm Emanuel coming.

* They ran out of furniture to use for Dibs.

* They were offered more for their votes in the suburbs.

* Wanted to be closer to suburban meth labs.

* Subway footlongs are only $4 in the suburbs.

* They knew too much.

* Losing the name Marshall Field's was the last straw.

* Were no longer feeling particularly welcome in Chicago.

* Wanted to send children to schools that had books.

* Were all part of the federal witness relocation program.

* They ascended to heaven; the rest of us have been Left Behind.

* Bartman.

* The Daley Administration told them to.
