  1. The plan is a good idea, but not thiught through. Chicago wants to raise money for its pension fund. There are many ways to do this that can be explored , skyway deal is a type of option.
    One problem is that if the investments dont return 7.5 in any year, but debt still has to be paid , city is in cash flow crunch. Lots of potential solutions , but it requires deep analysis and not tweetable answers. But is anybody really listening? Happy to do guest column .
