Today's pick to click: Test your Chicago smarts

Crain's Chicago Business has a very funny end-of-2005 news quiz, which starts with this introduction: Every year has its heroes and its scoundrels — especially in Chicago, a town that drinks to them both. This is our chance (and yours) to poke a little fun at those who've stolen our money, violated our trust and made us proud. Each answer is worth one point. We'll leave the scoring up to you.

I love it! Plus, I'm quite jealous of how witty the writer is and upset that it turns out that I really don't know all that much about Chicago (yes, I totally failed). The only problem I have with the quiz is that they leave the scoring up to the reader. Isn't that what my computer's for?
