This is great for the people of Chicago

I lived in Chicago for years and if I still lived there I would be thrilled to hear this news ahead of the Democratic National Convention coming to Chicago. There are going to be lots of people descending on the city during that time, some will be there to cause problems, and if you are just some regular Chicagoan trying to take the Red Line to work every morning this news is music to your ears. The city is preparing and that preparation will hopefully lead to keeping the citizens of Chicago safe during this convention.
