Night Spies

This week at: Marshall Field's



I was here right after work one night. It was still warm and there were lots of people out and about as I walked outside. I was heading south on Wabash to the gym when this guy came toward me, a normal, clean-cut twentysomething without a stitch of clothing on. As he passed, people stopped and stared, though no one spoke to him. When he walked past the revolving doors at Field's a woman who was coming out almost ran into him. She let out a scream, but he didn't react--just turned and walked around her. When I was coming back from the gym about 45 minutes later, I saw a paddy wagon in the area and assumed that the police had picked him up. Think he was just mad about the name change to Macy's?
