Logan's Run Crystal Atop Congress at Fourth

We can't say what this thing's going to look like when it's completed in 2003, and we can't say whether we'll even be around to see it, but we can ask: Is anybody else creeped out by the resemblance of this building's pointy glass top piece to that eerie throbbing crystal in that classic Seventies sci-fi flick Logan's Run? You know, the fiery "Carrousel" for Body Retirement and Life Renewal? The one that all citizens were supposed to report to when the life clock in their palm blinked, indicating that their time was up? Is it just us or ... is it some sort of twisted metaphor for the direction our downtown is taking? Renew! Renew! Renew!
