    ...now renamed Willis Tower...

    My dad used to have an office in that building...all the way up on the sixth floor! He'd always joke that his office in Chicago was actually 2 stories lower than his one in Nashville. Cool building, except when it first opened and windows were blowing out when the ice froze them!

    George Jefferson: Willis Tower! Ha! Why didn't they name it the Honky Zebra Tower!"

    (laugh track)

    Weezy Jefferson: Oh George!

    Helen Willis: They would have named a building after you too, George, but they couldn't find a building short enough.

    (whooped-up, in-your-face laugh track)

    Tom Willis: (random WASP-ish bumbling and ignorance ended by misuse of the word "ghetto")

    HIGH-larious.

    It makes sense the Sears Tower would be renamed. Sears moved out to the 'burbs a long time ago.

    Jeez, at first I thought maybe it was a terrorist attack but we were being really casual about things.
