Over the weekend the Tribune reported that the Chicago Children’s Museum has hired mega PR firm Hill & Knowlton to twist arms, and with local children’s advocacy groups falling into line, the odds are even better that Mayor Daley will get the City Council votes he needs to move the museum out of Navy Pier and into Grant Park, despite the opposition of area residents.
Well, as long as things are falling in place politically, Ben Joravsky and I think the mayor might as well find a way to resolve a few other nagging little issues by using some of that empty Grant Park space to:
· Send bulldozers in during the night to rip up the new downtown commuter airport, call it a nature preserve, and then use it for concerts to help balance the Park District budget.
· In the interest of fairness, build a new soccer field exclusively for students at the University of Chicago Lab School, who won’t always have access to the one their rivals at the Latin School are getting in Lincoln Park.
