As the auto industry is sinking, I won't be heading down to Chicago to shiver in long lines for a bagful of auto brochures of cars I have no intention of buying.However, I was surprised to learn there was a Corvette Concept Car on display, one of the few reasons I might actually don thermal underwear. Seems GM has no intention of making this vehicle, which puts it right on par with every other concept car I've seen for the last twenty years. Instead, it's just a mock-up as a product placement in the new Transformers movie "Revenge of the Fallen". Yawn. How about a movie called "The Revenge of the Overly-Gas-Taxed"? You think zombies are scary? Wait until you see the entire population of Illinois after the proposed 19 cent gas-tax increase to bail out a failing Chicago Transportation System. I'd join the protest, but they cancelled the Free Trolleys.
And don't get me started on the Olympics!!!! Read about what happens to people who make waves here. This will be the biggest patronage project the world has ever seen, and I can only hope it is the final straw that brings Daley down.
Speaking of Zombies (and Raptors): lighten up, IDOT. This is good, clean, undead fun.
