Yeah, but unfortunately Chicago never accepted FAA funds to do  
improvements to Meigs field.

However, Daley did go back on a promise he had made with an Illinois  
congressman, as well as do the deed in the middle of the night with  
police protection so no one would know what was happening and try to  
stop him.

Chicago was eventually fined $33,000 for failure to give notice on  
the closure of an airport.

Here's to hoping that the voters of Chicago throw Mayor Daley out on  
his ear as soon as the next election.
