Chicago is amazingly clean for a city of its size. I am speaking about the parts of Chicago that the tourists might see. Or the Olympic committee. The planters along the streets of downtown are changed up many times a year and are often mind-blowingly gorgeous. And have you see our parks? Awesome.
It is no secret that our city is a wee-bit corrupt. I don’t even want to know about half the things that go on behind closed doors. At least Chicago looks pretty on the outside. I think people would be a lot more pissed about the suspicious way things are run if the planters were full of garbage and pee. They might still have a little pee in them, but the pretty pink and green leaves are covering the spots up quite nicely.
