What happens when you bastardize the sacred ground of Soldier Field? You lose your national historic landmark status. This shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone. Keeping a few colonnades from the old stadium and then dwarfing them with a spaceship-inspired glass monstrosity does not a "national historic landmark" make. Don't worry Chicago, it's still a landmark. An ugly one, but you can use it to guide your boat around Lake Michigan nonetheless. ben
