The Great Chicago 2016 Olympic Adventure got a new, totally nonrepresentative logo yesterday; Mayor Daley took a break from protecting poor children from not having a museum in Grant Park to unveil it.

The designers did a fine job of rebounding from coloring outside the guidelines while preserving the gist of the old logo. It's clearly not as good, but given the IOC's idiotic rules, it's not too bad.

My superior proposals are still on the table, guaranteed seizure-free.
