I went to China on Vacation and was approached by the guide at a Tea Factory who asked me" Where are You From?"
And his response was " Oh Michael Jordan"
I was surprised by this answer but not too surprised because Michael Jordan was such a big star.
But I started to think about older images of Chicago like:
- Windy City: Chicago got this nick name because of it's politics being so winded.
- Chicago Gangsters: Al Capone and other notorious gangsters who were around during the 1920's.
- The Jungle: Welcome to the Jungle by " Upton Sinclair was a story about the Chicago Stock Yards where the smell of livestock was powerful. The stockyards have gone away but many probably remember the Chicago Amphitheatre located there and that is where the Beatles performed in Chicago.
