    why would they need 125 people to respond .... something doesn't sound right here --- that's about a dozen times the number needed -- maybe 18 x.

    a side note about the IC Chicago:
    The exotic gold dome, which is Moorish in influence, originated as part of a decorative docking port for dirigibles - a notion conceived before the Hindenburg disaster in 1937. Years later, the building would lose several feet with the dismantling of an ornamental canopy on the small turret north of the dome. This chimney-like structure was originally intended to assist in the docking of these air ships, but it was never put into use. Inside the dome, a glass cupola and spiral iron staircase resembling the top of a lighthouse led down to the hotel’s upper elevator landing.

    I tried to find a pic I recall seeing of a blimp passing very close to the dome w/people sticking their heads out of an opening in the dome, great shot !

    I'm wondering if perhaps alcohol was involved. :confused:
