I also know that anyone who has followed the Clown Car Fire and Boat Drill antics of the Daley Administration over the years as it has boldly made — and then broken — this same promise would be wise to approach this latest Civicnet Vaporware release party with whatcha might call Olympian levels of incredulity.

Driftglass recounts the long and unfortunate history of Chicago's nonexistent civic WiFi. If you want to take advantage of the city's limited offerings, one of my colleagues swears by the Chicago Cultural Center as a place to work.

* I see your pun and raise you. Really a slept-on album, the last R.E.M. one I really liked.
