"How about a visitors' center to a national park? I'd like that, only there'd be no gift shop with tacky souvenirs. Every thing would be free -- brochures, starting points for paths, descriptions of flora and fauna, that kind of thing. It's an entrance, a place where you come in and start your journey."
Proprietor, Midnite Majic Lingerie & Undergarments
"I guess it'd be a place for women who've been through domestic violence. It wouldn't be a safe house. No, it would actually be luxury apartments modeled on the Luxor Hotel but done in my own certain flair, maybe a soft lilac color with flowers surrounding it. I'm just thinking. I can see it in my head as I'm thinking about it. The marquee out front reads, 'Lucinda's House of Comfort.'"
Attorney at Law, Beard & Medler
"If I could be any building, I would be a public library of unpublished biographies so people could read about lame life experiences and stupid mistakes without actually having to waste their lives doing the same. Example: bungee jumping. Now that's an education worth getting."
Guest Services, St. Louis University Hospital
"It would probably be a community center or a world center where people of different ethnicities could get to know one another in a real way so we could make this world a little bit of a better place to live."

"It's called Rockin' Robin's Cross-Over Bridge. It goes across the Mississippi River at Davis Street here in Carondelet. It's a car bridge and a foot bridge with vendors and street performers. It's a toll bridge, because it's easier than the Poplar Street Bridge and more fun. It costs just 50 cents, but the tollbooth attendant tells you a joke. Seniors and handicapped people cross for 25 cents, and if you know the password -- 'tweet-tweet' -- you cross for free."

"I'd like to have an observatory named after me just to be able to name alien life forms. Like, if earthlings are called humanoids, then organisms from Uranus, you would think, would naturally be called hemorrhoids. But then again, maybe hemorrhoids should be called ass-teroids. It gets confusing, but I don't run the circus. I'm just one of the clowns."
