I have had another Significant Idea I have discussed with John HodgMan, the Smartest Man I have Ever Known. My proposal follows. I am sure everyone all Emeryville Residents will agree with me that it is a Neat Idea.
I see from your blog post above that you have given permission to the Very Large City of Chicago to dismantle all of its buildings following your recent visit (something that the Extremely Lovely City of San Francisco did not have to do after your visit because its buildings are Non-Fictional and Substantial and Michael Tilson Thomas needs some place to conduct his orchestra).
May I ask you, could you use your Superb Influence to arrange to have the City of Chicago, rather than putting its parts into storage, send them to the City in Which I Reside, Emeryville, California? This way, on your next visit to the Bay Area, you could enjoy beautiful Chicago architecture right in Emeryville (where it is warmer) instead of San Francisco architecture (where it is much much colder).
There would be very many benefits to this Course of Action, besides replacing the Moon-sized mall next to where I live and the Earth-sized Ikea Shopping Center where I purchased all of my furniture before I realized I had no idea how to assemble any of it (which I learned only after suffering a skull fracture).
We have two bookstores in Emeryville for you to read at: the Stupendous Borders and the Very Grand and Palatial Barnes and Noble (I do not visit either of them at this time, unfortunately. My wife Gladys forbade me from visiting any bookstores until I promise to stop filling in their coloring books . . . and then hid my crayons from me.).
You could also stay at my house and meet me and my Very Interesting Family. Pixar Studios is also located a short walk from my house, but do not be afraid. I shall never allow Pixar Studios to kidnap and imprison you in one of their computer animated Castle Dungeons with all the other toys they stole from me.
Please have the City of Chicago contact me about shipping their dismantled buildings to Emeryville. I am very confident that the Sears Tower will look very impressive on the spot where the Black & White Liquor Store now stands.
Thank you for your help.
