Star nomination[edit]

It may be presumptuous to nominate an article having just written it, but hey, I've always wanted to! I think this meets all the criteria, but I would of course welcome criticism. On which note I have to observe, if the saying "everyone's a critic" has any truth, then everyone has been rather quiet lately on this page ;) --(WT-en) Peter Talk 05:34, 15 December 2007 (EST)

  • Support. We just don't have enough star itineraries. And this is one heck of a guide! There is just one, teensy, minor problem: nothing links here. How are people going to find this absolutely magnificent article? (WT-en) PerryPlanet 11:51, 15 December 2007 (EST)
Good point. We'll work mentions into the main Chicago article and the Chicago/Loop article. Support. He's got this topic nailed down, including plenty that I didn't know (for all of the time I spent working down there), and a clear, easy route to enjoy it. I'd suggest Freeform as a lead photo, though, given its acclaimed status within the article and an easier form to grasp (compared to the more jumbled Town-Ho).

I'm tempted to leave the Town-Ho up at the top, both for egotistical reasons (the photo bears a strong personal touch, whereas I've seen others take a similar photo of Freeform), and because I like the statement it makes to put the most controversial work in the tour at the top. --(WT-en) Peter Talk 03:39, 17 December 2007 (EST)

Unusual English usage[edit]

"But the reactionary grumps have bit their tongues (after having removed their foots from their mouths)"

Is this intentional? (WT-en) Pbsouthwood 02:45, 23 October 2009 (EDT)

Yep—were you referring to the "foots"? The problem is that each reactionary grump only put one foot in, that is, one foot per mouth. I wouldn't want to lay upon any of them the slander of putting both feet into his/her mouth. I think I'm right on this grammatical point, but not positive ;) --(WT-en) Peter Talk 02:50, 23 October 2009 (EDT)
I'd say you're wrong. (WT-en) Pashley 03:05, 23 October 2009 (EDT)
Hmm, after consulting the hokey pokey I'm even less sure: You (plural) put your right foot in... --(WT-en) Peter Talk 03:15, 23 October 2009 (EDT)

Update (Large Upright Internal/External Form)[edit]

I just wanted to warn the authors of this guide that the artwork "Large Upright Internal/External Form" by Henry Moore has been sold in 2016 (source and is no-more on location.

Since this is a great itinerary and this piece of art is a central part of it (including a quote and a photo), maybe replace it with some recent acquisition?
