      Sorry, I can’t figure out the point of the photo. It looks as though a car bomb went off in front of the Wrigley Building.

      Looks like a movie set.

    3. Carl from Chicago Says:

      It is from the movie Transformers 3 being filmed on Michigan Ave

      They have 1/2 the city shut down

      Get the pun in the title? Not as good as Dan’s haiku :)

    4. Jonathan Says:

      That’s pretty good.

      It’s obviously a movie set because all of the apparent damage is debris that’s been dumped on the street without affecting the underlying infrastructure.

      This looks like midday. For how long did they shut down Michigan Ave? The external costs of temporarily closing major roads are probably high, but most voters don’t seem to care.

      Whole day I think …. it was there when I got to work at 9 am and was still cordoned off when I left at around 5 pm.

      Well if you clik on the photo you’ll see an enlarged picture showing some sort of construction (extorted tax dollars for pseudo stimulus work?) taking place so that the excessivly taxed citizens can have a nice place to sit and watch that open sewer flow by…

      Was I the only one intrigued enough to go visit accompanying posts @Carl’s home base blog and figured out the scene was a movie set transformation?
