Karl Rove

Just enough to get the job done, evidently.

<=== I'm with Trump

Trump Tower

B.R., a Chicago reader, regarding the huge TRUMP sign now being completed on the Trump Tower Chicago to deface the city’s downtown, writes:
“Might be nice to take those T-shirts that have arrows and ‘I’m with Stupid’ on them and have people wear them while being photographed next to the building.”
Thank you, B.R.
It could become a standard Chicago tourist photo.
And serve someone just right.

Birds of a feather

Donald Trump

Donald Trump regarding complaints about the allegedly tasteless “TRUMP” sign being installed on his Chicago skyscraper:
“People were saying, ‘Don’t put  a sign up.’ Now they’re saying, ‘We love the sign.’ ”
Exactly.
People understand that Trump’s name in 20-foot letters is in the tradition of many other signs in Chicago and other cities.
Or put it this way:
“LIVE NUDES.”
“PEEP SHOW”
“ADULT NOVELTIES”
“TRUMP.”
Fits right in.

L.S., a Chicago reader, wants to know when outdoor shopping centers became open-air human life centers, and when can we have outdoor shopping centers back?
