Here's an excerpt from an article at CNN from last month:
Sears Tower is history. As of Thursday, the iconic Chicago, Illinois, skyscraper is now named Willis Tower.
At least that's what the owners of the 110-story skyscraper now call it after its new main tenant, the London, England-based insurance broker Willis Group Holdings. However, there are plenty of people who refuse to call it that. More than 90,000 people have joined the group "People Against the Sears Tower Name Change," on the social networking Web site Facebook.
So, it turns out that I never got to see the top of the Sears Tower, but I saw the top of the Willis Tower. Sure, it's a technicality, but it's the truth.
That leads me to the question of the week:
If you were to go to the Sears/Willis Tower, what would you tell your friends?
(a) "I just went to the Sears Tower"
(b) "I just went to the Willis Tower"
(c) "I just went to the tallest building in North America"
(d) "I dropped my glasses down a crack at the top floor. Oops!"
The poll is on the sidebar. Please vote early, and tell all of your friends to vote. And, if you're looking in a crack at the top floor and see some glasses, you know who to notify.
