What you talkin' bout, Willis? Chicago's Sears Tower renamed

CHICAGO – One of the world's most iconic skyscrapers has long tempted Chicago visitors to squint, crane their necks and try to see the tip of the country's tallest building. But starting Thursday, Sears Tower will be gone.

Sort of. Its black, block-like architecture and towering rooftop spikes will remain, but the widely recognized name it carried for three decades will be pushed out by a British company.

Willis Tower will be introduced to Chicago by Mayor Richard M. Daley and others on Thursday during a public renaming ceremony hosted by Willis Group Holdings. The London-based insurance brokerage secured the naming rights as part an agreement to lease 140,000 square feet of space, and has said it plans to bring hundreds of jobs to the city.

Is this a sign.

Still have to contend with Kohl's (Germany?), IKEA (Sweden), etc.

Wow. So many more foriegn business in US now. They must be doing something right and/or we are doing something wrong. Unless it's just a further sign of the increasingly global economy.

"Plumeri said the company plans to bring hundreds of jobs to the city and help in the community. He presented a check for $100,000 to the volunteer organization Chicago Cares, said his company's 500 Chicago employees would help out the group and pledged to donate another $100,000 to Chicago 2016, the city's bid for that summer's Olympic Games."

Another dumb idea, but no surprise. The old promise of jobs along with a couple of bribes, er, checks, works wonders, doesn't it?

Not to worry, Princey. I pay my electric bill to a Brit owned company, and I like my tea, but we aren't about to let you guys take over. We want illegal immigrants to do that.

Sears hasn't been in Sears Tower since 1992, yet it's still called Sears Tower. Remains to be seen whether a new name will stick.
