Defacing the Sears Tower

Coming this summer 2009: the Willis Tower. What the hell? That’s right folks, they’re going to rename the Sears Tower because some new tenant from the UK decided they want their name on it. I mean seriously, why deface such an iconic landmark? Sears built it, not you. Maybe you should do something that that’s not a monument to stupidity if you want name recognition in the US. If you want to name something with landmark status go build your own tallest building. Don’t worry, it gets better. They want to repaint the Sears Tower silver to indicate it’s a green building. You have got to be kidding me. Stunts like this should be considered defacement of a signature landmark – hell, the signature landmark of the Chicago skyline.
