of a tower.
The Sears Tower is no more.
I've walked around it but not been inside the glass.
I'll admit to not knowing the circumstances of the change, and I might be glad about it if I bothered to read the details.
What do Chicagoans think?
the tower has gone from being named after an american department store chain to being named after a british insurance outfit.
What do I think?
I think I'm going to start telling everybody that "the moon" is now called "Fred."
Sears is a Chicago company. Willis is a British company. Otherwise, it makes sense because Sears moved all of its offices from the building in 1993. Willis is currently the biggest leaseholder in the building.
I couldn't care less. But then I'm one of those people who also didn't give a damn about Marshall Fields being turned into Macy's. I think I'm in the minority around here.
