Quote by Thomas Frank
Selling public property is the true Chicago way. Had Mr. Obama not been elected president, the nation's business journals would be falling over one another to praise his city for its daring, market-friendly innovations.
This quote suggests that the act of selling public property is a common practice in Chicago. It implies that if President Obama had not been elected, his city would be recognized and praised by business journals for its bold and market-driven approaches. The quote possibly highlights a perception that Chicago, under Obama's leadership, would prioritize and encourage privatization of public assets, which some believe could stimulate economic growth and efficiency.
Anyone who has played the game professionally, you're always taught that the ball is the most important, most precious thing, so when the ball hits the ground, it's always a mad scramble. It's amazing how many times there is a fumble, and the person who recovers it initially doesn't walk away with the ball.
The point is that no matter what you choose to do with your body when you die, it won't, ultimately, be very appealing. If you are inclined to donate yourself to science, you should not let images of dissection or dismemberment put you off. They are no more or less gruesome, in my opinion, than ordinary decay or the sewing shut of your jaws via your nostrils for a funeral viewing.
