Removed "despite its usually cold weather" from the line about the 1995 heat wave. Although it can easily get below freezing in the winter, it can just as easily get above 90oF in the summer.
excessively long article ?
When I tried to edit the Chicago article, I got this message at the top of the edit page:
- WARNING: This page is 67 kilobytes long; some browsers may have problems editing pages approaching or longer than 32kb. Please consider breaking the page into smaller sections or removing irrelevant information.
This results from two situations: (1) a very long "Bibliography" list near the end of the article, and (2) a fairly long "History" section. In accordance with the above message, I propose doing the following: move the history to a new article called "History of Chicago", thus making more room for other valuable information.

Anti Second Amendment Category
I am re-adding the Category:Anti Second Amendment that was deleted by User:SamHB. The reason is that among American conservatives, TEA Party members, libertarians, conservative Christians, Patriots and Preppers, Chicago is very famous for its urban gun crime, gangs with drive-by shootings, yet like the other liberal cities below it has the strongest anti-Second Amendment gun control "laws" (followed only by law-abiding citizens not thugs.
- Gun control -- Los Angeles, along with San Francisco, Washington D.C., New York City and Chicago, is known to be one of the 5 top cities with the most left-wing Anti-Second Amendment laws. See "Vote with your feet" strategic relocation to free states
