Being from Chicago, this brings tears to my eyes...

The 110-story Chicago giant, the nation's tallest building, will be renamed Willis Tower under a leasing deal. The New York-based owners signed a lease with Willis Group Holdings, a London-based insurance broker, for 140,000 square feet.

Like Comiskey Park before, it will always be the Sears Tower to me.
