Watch out for torches and pitchforks
In response to this editorial, I just sent a letter to the Chicago Tribune explaining, in all seriousness, why I think the Chicago Children's Museum should be relocated to Englewood.
I'm dead, aren't I.
Update: ArchitectureChicago PLUS passes along a post by Yellow Dog Democrat in ILLINOIZE, and now I feel like I'm in junior high all over again. Like, totally.
Many (Better) Children's Museums, Only One Grant Park
Nicely takes His Royal Highness to task on his incoherent and bastardly claims of rabid racism. I say we should move the blasted thing to Englewood. Let's force Daley to eat his own words. I hope he chokes on them. Er, after he's done installing the bike rental system, that is. Damn! I'm doing it again!
Updated update: Benjamin (who actually gives money to Tribune Co. in exchange for daily delivery of the Trib's print edition for reasons I've never been able to understand) tells me that my provocative snark of a letter actually made it to page 7 of the Perspectives section. I can't confirm this because (1) damned if I'll buy a newspaper, unless the White Sox are on the front page, and (2) the ad-ridden online edition is crashing my modem.
Metaupdate: At least one other coworker has told me "Hey, read your letter in the Tribune, nice job!" I'm going to miss this office. :-(
Omniupdate: Hey, another one of my letters to the editor got printed, this one in Chicago Wilderness Magazine re: Have Train, Will Travel and the Chicagoland Bicycle Map (as I mentioned before here). What am I, old?
