"Meigs Field would have never been changed if you were worried about lawyers." 

Runner-up: "McCormick Place [East]—that was bad planning. Soldier Field was bad planning. Meigs Field was bad planning. … This has to do with children. It's good planning."

Sometimes I think the Children's Museum fracas has less to do with kids or Grant Park or architecture or free and clear etc. and has a lot to do with the powers that almost are but aren't having lost a lot of pissing matches to the powers that be. And I'm okay with that. There are obviously bigger problems, but you might as well throw down against a weak hand for a small victory.
