  1. Because the city was designed by a French architect L'Enfant and it's patterned after the classical capitals of Europe, particularly Rome and Paris. The design of the city is to showcase museums, monuments and palatial buildings. If you're looking for American-influenced architecture, you wouldn't see much in DC because American culture hasn't taken shape yet when the city was founded barely 20 years after independence. If you're looking for heavily American architecture, you'd find it in Chicago-as it's produced two Chicago schools of architecture.
  2. It's better for IOC to revamp the process first rather than give out talking points that would spell disasters--financially
  3. Maybe both. Rahm-bo is clearly not dumb nor anti-Olympics. He's smart and has strategies up his sleeve. In his first year of his term, he's ruffled a lot of feathers in City Hall, revamped the city finances, and led to a public showdown against the Chicago Public School Teachers Union last year. You're right that he's mayor until at least 2015 and most likely beyond that. Rahm has been building his reelection campaign fund and no formidable opponent has been named and neither would anyone win against him. Rahm is still in the process of getting the city books in order, reining in the bud
  4. The USOC is waiting for Chicago to change its mind.
