      Note Meigs Field (airport) in the background. What happened to it: "Sneaking in under the cover of darkness, city of Chicago construction crews began tearing up the runway at Meigs Field this morning at about 1:30 a.m. There was no advance warning, not even to the FAA. Some 16 aircraft are stranded on the field. A city source told the Chicago media that the "airport is closed for good." How some reacted: "I'm a little ashamed of Chicago right now," Inhofe told a public hearing in the Windy City. He (U.S. Senator Inhoffe) called Mayor Daley's midnight raid on Meigs Field "an act of arrogant recklessness reminiscent of the 1920s, not the 21st century." The reality: Meigs Field is now referred to as Northerly Island and features outdoor recreation and entertainment opportunities for Chicago residents and visitors. Bravo, Mayor Daley.
