I've always wanted to attend the Olympics. It was an event that dominated the TV as a child. For that reason I wanted Chicago to win the bid for the 2016 games.
Then I read the MJS article in Sunday's paper and saw something in the article that somewhat changed my mind.
Both (Madison Mayor Dave) Cieslewicz and (Milwaukee Mayor Tom) Barrett also hope that a Chicago Games would speed development of high-speed rail on a corridor from Chicago to Milwaukee to Madison.If this is one of the "benefits" to Milwaukee for Chicago winning the 2016 games, I say come on Rio.
