    Default Chicago style

    As we say around here, "The City that works".

    Subject: Chgo Politics heads to Washington !

    Three contractors are bidding to fix a broken fence at the
    White House in D.C.; One from Chicago , one from Tennessee
    and a third from Kentucky . They all go with a White House
    official to examine the fence.

    The Tennessee contractor takes out a tape measure and does some measuring, then
    works some figures with a pencil.
    'Well', he says, 'I figure the job will run about $900: $400 for
    materials, $400 for my crew and $100 profit for me.'

    The Kentucky contractor also does some measuring and
    figuring, then says, 'I can do this job for ! ! $700: $300 for
    materials, $300 for my crew and $100 profit for me.'

    The Chicago contractor doesn't measure or figure, but
    leans over to the White House official and whispers, '$2,700. '

    The official, incredulous, whispers back, 'You didn't even
    measure like the other guys! How did you come up
    with such a high figure?'

    The Chicago contractor whispers back, '$1000 for me,
    $1000 for you, and we hire that guy from Kentucky to fix the fence.'

    'Done!' replies the government official.

    And that my friends, is how it all works in Chicago !!!
