Chicago – Urban Forum

Hmmm … really must learn how to zoom on my camera phone…

Here’s where I spent the morning, at (Chicago) Mayor Daley’s annual Urban Forum. The Lord Provost of Glasgow was there, adding a bit of local colour for me; and we had the Mayors of 20-odd other global cities. This was the keynote – an address by US Vice President Joe Biden. Not worth dwelling on the rest of the work day, except to note that I only had about 20 minutes of unscheduled time; and that that was devoted to preparing a meeting to brief staff on contingency arrangements in the event of the swine ‘flu pandemic spreading to the Chicago region. The good news in this case is that the drugs work (the tamiflu vaccine, that is …).
