[ Greg Hinz, reporter and columnist for Crain's Chicago Business, would have to be on anyone's short list for the best journalist in town. I'm a religious reader of his blog and if you're in Chicago you should be too. This is one of his columns from a couple months ago that Crain's was kind enough to allow me to reprint for you today. They didn't make me say this, but if you want to be sure to read all of what Greg has to say, you should subscribe to Crain's. - Aaron. ]
