Economist's obit for Bellow

Now I know why Chicago's home. The April 16, 2005 Economist's obituary for Saul Bellow quotes him saying, "Chicago was a place that loved irregular people".

I wonder how irregular we are but we sure seem to pride ourselves on uniqueness for some reason. We're probably more conventional than we think but very forgiving and offer second, third, fourth chances to all.
