You just have to love this flurry of indignant stories (as here, to cite just two) coming out of Chicago.
It seems that some prominent denizens of that fine city are outraged — outraged! — at the fact that Donald Trump’s brand new Trump Tower that graces the banks of the Chicago River has a huge sign going up on the side of building that says…wait for it… “TRUMP.”
Oh the humanity! Mayor Rahm Emanuel is enraged. He called the sign — really, no kidding — “tasteless.” And the Chicago Tribune’s architecture critic, one Blair Kamin, is beside himself, calling it a “self-indulgent branding exercise.” And more.
One has to wonder if any of these Trump critics actually live in Chicago. Why would I wonder that? Well, I’ve been to Chicago. A terrific city, with many things to see. Like what?
