For G-Day on ABC Wednesday here is a photo that involves two generals and a gargantuan building in that great town, Chicago. We had gathered in Chicago for the wedding celebration of young friends on Saturday evening and had all day before the train would take us back to Fabius. So Sunday morning we strolled through Grant Park (named for U.S. President and Civil War General Ulysses S. Grant) on our way to the Shedd Aquarium and the special exhibit on Jellyfish. It was at the corner of the park at 11th Street that we passed this monument to the Civil War general, John Alexander Logan, an Illinois hero and congressman (not necessarily synonymous).
The building behind General Logan is the Aon Center. I knew it once as the Standard Oil building. To its left is the Two Prudential Plaza building and on the right our insurance money at work, the Blue Cross Blue Shield Tower. The Wikipedia article on the Aon Center has an interactive panoramic view of downtown Chicago in which you can see the relative height of all the city's skyscrapers.
