I like it. I miss the good old’ days. Too bad we didn’t realize how good they were and do more to hang on to them.

Chicagos Mayor Rahm Emanuel, currently fighting for his political life in a heated run-off campaign, floated the idea Wednesday of naming an airport after the Windy Citys favorite son: President Barack Obama.
When asked at a candidate forum at Chicago State University why he was no longer supporting his own proposal to name two high schools after Obama and influential religious and community leader Arthur Brazier, Emanuel said that he was still looking for ways to acknowledge people who have done significant things.
We have an airport, two of them, you know, Midway Airport, OHare Airport, Emanuel said. [Obama and Brazier] are people who have been transformative in the city of Chicago. But we have airports named after battleships.
