A Sun-Times star comes out against the Olympics

If you've been reading Ben Joravsky on the Olympics - and his latest column is infuriating - you won't learn much new, but it's a pretty big thing to have Rick Telander (who would obviously have a lot of professional interest in the games) come out swinging against the 2016 Olympics.

Seriously, though, read Joravsky's latest, about how the plan for the games includes tearing down a renovated pool and gym that we just spent $30 million on.

Update: Actually, I undersold Telander's column. Joravsky points out the key parts that aren't getting enough attention.
