Question of the day

Wednesday, Oct 4, 2017

* CNNMoney

Cities across North America are pulling out the stops to become the home of Amazon’s second headquarters. […]

In an effort to bring HQ2 to Tucson and Southern Arizona, economic development group Sun Corridor loaded a 21-foot Saguaro cactus onto a truck to deliver to Amazon. […]

Birmingham, Alabama has installed three massive Amazon delivery boxes around the city to coincide with the launch of Mayor William Bell’s formal bid for the second headquarters. The city plans to add more boxes, too. […]

Amazon, Georgia? Earlier this week, the Stonecrest City Council in Georgia voted to de-annex 345 acres of its land if selected for Amazon’s second home. The new area would be called the city of Amazon.

* Kinda reminds me of something

No, in this case, I think we have to go all out. I think that this situation absolutely requires a really futile and stupid gesture be done on somebody’s part.

* The Question: What “futile and stupid gesture” would you recommend for Chicago in this Amazon HQ2 sweepstakes?

Have fun.

    Offer to add a fifth star to the Chicago flag for Amazon — but then tell them we had to take away a star when rating because HQ2 wasn’t the size we thought it would be.
