Chicago surrealists on the flooding of the city in 1992.
"This isn't funny."
--Mayor Richard Daley, 13 April 1992, in his first statement to the press on the flood.
"As the offices emptied, there was little sense of the alarm or panic usually associated with major disasters. . .More typical was the humor and even giddiness with which many greeted the unexpected holiday."--Chicago Tribune, 14 April 1992, page 1
