The Chicago Sun-Times reports on the Windy City's War against Wal-Mart:Or the wad of tax revenue.
Eighteen months after the Chicago City Council torpedoed a South Side Wal-Mart, 24,500 Chicagoans applied for 325 jobs at a Wal-Mart opening Friday in south suburban Evergreen Park, one block outside the city limits.
The new Wal-Mart at 2500 W. 95th is one block west of Western Avenue, the city boundary. Of 25,000 job applicants, all but 500 listed Chicago addresses, said John Bisio, regional manager of public affairs for Wal-Mart.
As blogger Steve Bartin notes, "The morons who run Chicago don't appear to want jobs in the city of Chicago." (link)
Idiots. The city of Chicago is run by idiots.
