What's in a name?

Apparently Chicagoans will soon find out. The Marshall Field's "flagship" store on State Street is soon to become another Macy's. In a time of wars and hurricanes and bird flu and similar downers it's tough to view this as a big deal. Still, I do. Just as someone would mourn the re-naming of Wrigley Field or Madison Square Garden, I hate to see a nostalgic symbol of my youth erased. Like the Wal-Marts and Walgreens that have homogenized towns across America, so too will this make generic, a small portion of downtown Chicago.
