They are staging filming for Transformers 4 (really, America?) outside my office. I checked my building's basement bar, and no sign of Mr. Diggler or Dr. Crane. No indication they will be part of the filming this weekend.

It is, for the most part, setup for a night of action sequences. Still, there has been a steady crowd of people, maybe 30 to 50 in number, watching Chicago's surliest Teamsters face-off with private security for the title of Who Can Do the Least While on the Clock. At least one family of four has been watching for an hour.

You are on vacation in a great city, on a beautiful day (80 degrees, lake breeze), and this is how you spend it? Go to the park, to the top of Sears Tower, eat at Bubba Gump Shrimp for chrissakes! Why are you taking pictures of this?
