I wrote a post on my Forbes blog about visiting the Marilyn Monroe statue.
On the Saturday I saw the statue, spectators swarmed around her ankles. Earlier, it had been raining, but now the sky was mostly blue. At Lake Michigan, the annual Chicago Air & Water Show was underway. Downtown, the screams of fighter jets whizzing by overhead reverberated between the skyscrapers surrounding Marilyn, her head tilted back, her eyes closed, her mouth smiling.
