wikipedia, you could do better

I happened across wikipedia’s page for Chicago. The first sentence reads, “Chicago is the largest city in the state of Illinois.” Can that be any more boring? C’mon wikipedia, step it up. If you’re going to be constantly advertising for donations, I want a better intro for Chicago.

Some alternate first sentences:

Chicago lost the bid to host the 2016 Olympic Games

Chicago is home to “Roseanne” co-star Laurie Metcalf

Chicago is home to 2 MLB teams

Chicago is not Detroit

I like that Tom made proposals. Y’know moose, it IS wikipedia. You can edit the page yourself. Here’s my proposed intro line for Chicago:
Chicago, the architecture capital of the world.
