You probably saw Rosenthal's column about this, contrasting with the Super Bowl. At least with the Super Bowl, downtown Indy was turned into a gigantic party for over a week. With the G8, downtown Chicago will shut down. It will probably have a negative economic impact. The only way Chicago wins with this is by playing the game of low expectations, which is something a city like Chicago shouldn't be in the business of doing.

Incidentally, the design of that host committee web site is completely bush league. With all the design talent in the city they couldn't have built a better web site? That doesn't inspire confidence.
