  1. It's flipped, if you read the sign.

    I don't know what it says about Harold though – Harold, don't let the turkeys get you down!! Is it time for a news fast?

      1. You're serious, aren't you? I've only seen that the one time, but it's in the right spot for it, isn't it?

        1. Yes, Harold is probably standing on Michigan Avenue, facing (and taking the picture) eastward.

      2. Oooooh!!! That is one piece of public art I actually like. I'd love to see it in person some day.

      3. How does it stay so clean that you can take this photo bounced off it? (says the Angeleno) Does an army of cleaners attack it every day?

        Btw Chi-towners… congratulations!!!!!!!!!

        I don't even follow baseball and I was worn out and happy last night. (From watching baseball.)
