The people--by way of the Illinois Bureau of Tourism--have spoken, announcing today the Seven Wonders of Illinois. Chicagoland's official wonders: Wrigley Field and the Baha'i House of Worship in Wilmette. Envious as usual from their diminutive position of faded Midwestern preeminence, this newswriter in St. Louis wants you to think that Missouri is wonderful too. Truth be told, I'm more of a Colossus of Rhodes guy myself anyway.
