Kudos from our friendly neighbor to the North

While surfing the net today I stumbled upon this article from the Chicago Tribune. It espouses the qualities of the city of Indianapolis. Indy has gotten a lot of good press but I thought it was especially nice to see it from the Trib. It actually is the second glowing story I have seen this summer from a Chicago paper.

I think it is fantastic. I can't tell you how many arguments I have had with folks from Chicago defending the Nap. It is nice to see a Chicagoan say some good things about Indy. Indy will never be Chicago--one of the world's truly great cities. But it certainly has more than its fair share of qualities. Heck the writer of the article didn't even seem sore about the Colts' smack down of Da Bears in Super Bowl 41.

But as a Delaware County native I could have done without the dig on Muncie.

Just a suggestion to continue Indy's popular upswing: Don't use the nickname "Nap". Sounds like code for a crack house or something. ;-)

Indy is just fine. Short and pithy. We East Coast Elites like that. ;-)

The comments after the article are entertaining.

As a long time Indy resident, who tries to leave but keeps getting sucked back in by the vortex of nothingness, I have affectionately produced our City's slogan..which should be made into a bumper sticker as long as i get the royalties....

Indianapolis - Chicago's better.
