It has been said out there although admittedly it's by people who like to criticize cities such as Chicago because of it's decades long Democratic Party dominance of city government. Chicago has many issues without a doubt, however, will Chicago be the next Detroit?
This Sun-Times analysis says no. Time can only tell, but without having to read it I can only agree that Chicago may well be a long way from Detroit. Let's hope that the people who are leading the city will do what it takes to not allow Chicago to fall the way Detroit has.
