Olympic losses

Why don't we put the cost of any anticipated and/or realized loss from the Olympics on the people and corporations that stand to gain from them? Build into any contracts a clause that attaches a percentage of the value of the contract as a bond to offset any loss suffered by the City of Chicago. This should occur with any contract with a value greater than $10,000. This would shield small suppliers (if there were to be any this small).

Open letter
to the IOC
"Why you don't want to give the Olympics to Chicago"

Dear Member of the International Olympic Committee: 

The unfavorable publicity for the 2016 Committee and its work comes from a wide range of sources and points of view.

Ray Hanania writes columns analyzing Middle East issues that are distributed internationally. Winner of three Lisagor Award for Column Writing, Hanania was also named Best Ethnic American Columnist by the New America Media in November of 2007. He also hosts a daily radio show and maintains several public affairs blogs.

He has criticized Mayor Daley and the 2016 Committee for discrimination against the city's extensive Arab-American community.
