I stick by my assertion that any city that takes great pains to point out its qualifications as a "world class city" isn't a world class city. Yet this small post by Aaron Renn and more significantly the numerous comments it generated, is an interesting study of Chicago, its strengths, and its viability.
Funny, where else would you see leader in freight transportation (comment #2) as a qualification for world classiness?
