Scotchguard is running a contest of sorts with the National Trust for Historic Preservation: vote for one the 20 buildings on their list, and the winner will be protected and preserved with a variety of Scotchguard products. Kind of odd, yes, but any effort toward preservation of historic buildings is a good one. The Auditorium Theater is Chicago's entry; vote early and often! (Thanks, Ed.)
