Barry Popik's long-awaited recognition for his work on Chicago's sobriquet "Windy City" finally came today in Nathan Bierma's Chicago Tribune story.
Mr. Bierma deserves credit for doing his level best to get to the bottom of the story, and his article is very welcome indeed. Thanks go to him; and to Barry: Congratulations!
P.S. I'd like to reprint the whole story here but am not sure where that stands with regard to copyright restrictions.
