This is what happens when you dye the river green

The blessed Virgin has appeared in the Windy City. True to the city's industrial roots, this vision of divinity is not currently on display on something natural like a grilled cheese sandwich. Pilgrims have gathered at an emergency turnoff on Chicago's Kennedy Expressway to see a water stain.

It seems cruel to make any comments about these people. This is a city whose citizens believe a goat is responsible for the Cubs' sixty year World Series drought. The ones who think they saw a miracle in concrete and drainage while the pope was being elected are probably some of the more rational citizens.
