Carol Williams - considering I am a native Chicago gal (born, raised, married, and had my children in Chicago (the REAL city of Chicago; not a suburb) I was particularly interested in the Outside Feature in reference to largest growth and largest decline. I am not the least bit surprised. Everyday, I see more cars in TX with IL and CA plates and the traffic never has a window of opportunity like the old days when traffic was heaviest during business hours.
