Can I get an ‘Amen’ for changes at O’Hare International Airport?

According to a recent column in the Chicago Tribune, city aviation commissioner Richard Rodriguez wants O’Hare airport to be a hipper, happier, more happening place.

“Viewing the airports as more than a stopover, Rodriguez wants to increase travelers’ exposure to local culture so they return to Chicago, perhaps next time on vacation rather than on business.”

He’s thinking live music, more artwork, a few manicure shops, and perhaps a Thai restaurant, a Caribbean eatery, and someplace welcoming to vegetarian and vegan travelers.
