Chicago PM Friday 8 June 2012
Mara Shalhoup, Editor, Chicago Reader
The Friday 8 June Reader article starting: "In 1952, the New Yorker ran the three part article..." refers to Chicago as "the city of broad shoulders...." As you probably have been reminded by third-graders, that designation is only used by dummys who have never read the great American writer Carl Sandburg, who called it "City of the Big shoulders." This is especially egregious in a publication that has Chicago in its name. But then in the next paragraph you do quote Sandburg: "...City of the Big Shoulders."
That's just weird.
