The [Tuesday] Papers

"George Lucas' decision to take his memorabilia collection elsewhere leaves us with a question: What will become of the lakefront site where the billionaire Star Wars creator planned to build his Museum of Narrative Art?" Crain's columnist Joe Cahill wonders.

"Mayor Rahm Emanuel offered his truculent answer the other day, telling reporters, 'We're left with a parking lot in the middle of the museum campus. If you look into the future, that's gonna be a parking lot.'"

Why? Did I miss the part where the court ordered that spot to remain a parking lot for time immemoriam? Does the city have to abide by a Lakefront Parking Lot Ordinance? Did Daniel Burnham decree that great men make no parking lot plans?

"When I asked [Emanuel's] office about possible alternative uses for the site, I got this e-mail from a spokeswoman: 'There are no proposals to build on the site and we've moved on to other matters.'"

Geez, who is (Best) Friend of the Parking Lot now?

*

"Friends of the Parks officials didn't respond to my questions about their vision for the site, but they've applauded a proposal to include it in a nature sanctuary."

Or maybe a Chicago Museum of Unanswered Questions, though the lot probably isn't big enough for that.

*

Given the site's proximity to Soldier Field, why not make it an athletic area for kids? I'm not suggesting the NFL Experience exactly, but a kids area would also be useful after a long day museuming, no?
