The Week in Review: Musk Promises 12-Minute O’Hare Express


Elon Musk’s Boring Company wins a bid to build high-speed transportation from downtown Chicago to O’Hare International Airport. Musk and Mayor Rahm Emanuel trumpet the underground plan as a revolutionary step towards the future – but how technologically and economically feasible is it?

A former aide to House Speaker Michael Madigan responds to allegations of sexual harassment from an ex-staffer in a 14-page document. Disgraced former U.S. House Speaker Dennis Hastert is set to be deposed this summer in connection with a sex abuse lawsuit.

And in sports, ex-Bulls player Dennis Rodman visits Singapore this week to try his hand at diplomacy during the historic U.S.-North Korea summit.
