Chicago seems finally to have gone the way of Manhattan, ie it has gone mad. A local business magnate called Henning has persuaded the authorities to install hundreds of plastic cows up and down Michigan Avenue, the so- called Magnificent Mile, having developed an enthusiasm for the ruminant while on a trip to Switzerland. Happily they are not permanent, and will be auctioned off next month. One hint as to why Mr Henning is so interested in cows: he is a shoe tycoon.
