Long-time readers know my feelings on Northerly Island.
I think it is one of the coolest things done anywhere in the world for a modern wild space.

Those new plans are earning raves with the formal announcement on Thursday.
Even the editorial writers of my beloved Sun-Times are finally out with positive support for Northerly Island.

Fishermen who attended the to-do Thursday night called with much joy because Chicago fishing activities are not just a sideline but positively included in the plans.
As well they should be, it was a perch fishing derby that blew the lid off and opened up the former airport to the public. An airport formerly restricted to use by an exclusive few, I would add.
My concern is if all these great plans will get done with a new mayor.
