What's that? Only $50 million short?

Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley reveals that his federal stimulus package wish list includes $50 million to make up a "deficit" in the O'Hare Airport expansion program. Without the money, he said, the project won't be completed on time, in 2014.

Good one, Richie.

While you're in D.C. begging, why don't you ask for the billions of dollars that the program lacks, because the airlines won't commit to financing the second phase. Well, at least you're finally admitting that you're short some dough, even though it's just a tiny fraction of what you're truly lacking.
