Worst idea: Design for a Ripley's museum at Harborplace

The news: The Sun's Lorraine Mirabella reports that the proposed Ripley's Believe It or Not! odditoreum at Harborplace "initially featured a three-dimensional sea monster bursting from the building, teeth bared, as its green body coiled around a three-masted ship. A later version, revised at the urging of officials, shows the fanged sea serpent, Chessie, wrapped around a two-story entrance to the pavilion." Our take: Dear Ripley's, Thanks for making Hooters look classy. Readers respond: Tone it down???? Are they kiddin' me?? Somethin' like this is PERFECT!! If Baltimore City officials keep on staying in the "casual" approach for the Inner Harbor, we're going to run out of visitors. You have to keep the Inner Harbor fresh with NEW and innovative ideas! You mean to tell me that having a mere FEW attractions that are kids/family-oriented will totally ruin the harbor? I think the more recent ideas are fantastic (1. Cable-stayed bridge crossing the Inner near Key Highway, 2. Ferris Wheel, 3. Baltimore's version of the Eiffel Tower). Again, city officials need to wake up & smell the coffee. Bobbysworld86
