A Great Day in Chicago!

11/05/2008

And, among other issues, clearly Obama’s victory will help Chicago bid for the 2016 Olympics:

‘‘I wonder how IOC members will react when Mr. Obama appears in a presentation for Chicago,’’ Japanese Olympic Committee (a rival bidder for 2016) President Tsunekazu Takeda told Japanese media Wednesday.” More here.

What is it about Obama and columns?

10/03/2008

Dr. Freud, can a column sometimes be just a column?

It started way back when


at least as far back as Harvard.

Small columns adorn the front of my house


on Chicago’s south side.

And yet, I keep dreaming about bigger ones.

I took my campaign to Berlin; guess where I ended up?


I don’t find Middle East politics particularly sexy, but

And to humbly accept my party’s nomination at the convention in Denver, I erected 


The Washington Post got close enough to see they were made of drywall and laminated plywood.  I will etch in stone that as President, I’ll be more solid and honest.  

Doc, do you think I like these things because like them I’m tall and thin?   

I figured I liked them because columns connote strength, and democracy


and exactly what I’m hoping for – victory!



Dr. Freud, is that why we have yet to have a female president?

Grow up, I’m interested in how columns project Humanism 


Like these, copied from the Erechtheum on Athens’ Acropolis. These ladies call out to me from the Museum of Science and Industry on the south side of Chicago, a major monument, just a few blocks where I live. For now.  Until

Like Obama? Like Frank Lloyd Wright?

10/03/2008

Combine “Left” and Wright

here, with this.

I’m sure the evening will look like

By the way, what is Obama’s arts and culture policy? Or McCain’s?

More photos of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Clarence Sondern house here, (where the top two are from also.)

Yesterday I was at Frank Lloyd Wright’s Ravine Bluffs development in Glencoe, Illinois; there’s bad news and there’s lots of good news.

Tomorrow morning I’ll visit Wright’s Barnsdall Residence (Hollyhock) and his Freeman Residence, both in Los Angeles. Photos will follow.
