I'll have to drive by. It's right on the lakefront, at the end of Wisconsin Avenue. For reasons that I can't imagine, that abomination called "the sunburst" is _still_ in the way, spoiling the view. I'm sure that some art purist would take me to task, but the thing is _ugly_. Here's a link: http://www.milwaukeeworld.com/html/mlaw/ml011109front.php ...and another showing the relative positioning: http://photos.fasick.net/milwaukee/JLF0402A01 My grandpa had a plan to don orange vests, get a yellow work van, put up cones around the area, and torch-cut the sucker into pieces. I see his point. And, that was _before_ it was blocking the view of a stunningly attractive building. Fred, if you want to give me a call when you get here, or when you're coming, email me and we can do lunch or something. You'll be doing a training session at the ed center, I assume?
