This morning has been one of back-patting and thanks to officials and police for all the hard work put into this weekend's NATO events.

Like all things in Chicago, there are knowns that go unsaid, and the big ones are thanking the police officers for not evoking scenes of the '68 Democratic Convention, the protesters for not burning down the South Loop and to residents for dealing with the Doom's Day scenarios the media have been girding for.

As a final thank you, Mayor Rahm Emanuel stopped by the Roosevelt 'L' stop to greet commuters this morning, and thanked them for the "hospitality they showed world leaders, journalists and visitors during the NATO Summit."

We'd like to invite our readers to give their thanks to the officials for NATO.
