Defining `progress' 

Francine Salerno

July 24, 2004

Chicago -- Though our new Millennium Park may be beautiful, we've been defining "progress" as more and bigger buildings, fancy fountains and expensive sculptures, and events that draw thousands.

True progress is ours when we have no homeless people, no hungry children, no illiteracy and no poverty.

It seems we need to get our priorities in order.
