Re: “Old Chicago - Academy

OC Academy has been my home port for the entire decade. Food's good, beer's better, people are the best!

Re: “Old Chicago - Academy

Who's got balls big enough to serve a hot dog for $10 by calling it a Chicago Dog, then serve it without sport peppers? OC.

Still a favorite place of mine, but their recent "Chicago-inspired Classics" spring menu has felt like a failure in both concept and execution.

The $16.99 10oz loin steak is acceptable but not inspiring and not a great value. The $9.99 Chicago Dog is a straight ripoff.

Re: “Letters

@Steve Suhre "Instead of working 70 hours a week, a greedy achiever could thus quit after 35 hours because his new marginal tax rate is 98 percent; that is, for every dollar earned after 35 hours he'd keep just two cents. By retiring for the week, this wise person creates one new job for a fellow citizen."

Holy 2nd-grade understanding of employment and economics, Batman!

Most of your "overachievers" aren't hourly. The work they don't do by trading their 70hr work week for a 35hr workweek will not be done by someone else. It will just remain undone. And there will be no additional 35hrs of paid work for someone without a job...

Re: “Letters

@Richard Brandt: "Daniel Davis of La Junta ("Maes and the media," Letters, July 22) refers to "the free press" as "a right granted by God, not government..."

Huh. I thought a free press was referred to in the First Amendment to the United States Constitution, not in the Gospels."

The Constitution does not grant rights, it ENUMERATES them... pointing out those listed as especially important natural rights.
