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.
