Your sidebar currently has Dearborn, MI spelled as "Deerborne." Come on. Loosen the purse strings a little and hire a couple more editors.

We must never forget 9/11. I would like to personally thank the Strib and others who are printing stories like this and telling the story again. We also have to remember every military person, particularly those who have or are currently serving in Iraq and/or Afghanistan, and even more so those who lost their lives fighting for us. You fight them over there so we won't have to here. From the bottom of my heart I thank you...

I wonder if they will be having celebrations in Michigan again, like "they" did on the day of the attacks.

Gee, I hope the frail chicagoans can get over their "fear" when they see an airplane flying 10 years after planes hit buildings in new york. What a joke. They are more likely to be killed on the street in that cesspool of humanity. And how is Iowa dealing with their post 9-11 fear? I missed yesterday's special on Iowa's fear resulting from an attack in new york 10 years ago.

It must be depressing to live in a city which reached its peak heydey decades ago based on charismatic individuals like Richard Daley, Al Capone, etc. Of course, to a lesser extent, Minneapolis-St. Paul is past its heyday as well.

It would be nice it they changed the name back to "Sears Tower". It is a significant part of US history.

With chaos comes opportunity. This is why the wealthy in this country perpetuate the cycle of bubbles and bursting bubbles. They are secretly smiling right now at the economic chaos they have created for the rest of us.

Sears was once the largest retailer in the world. It lost its competitive edge and has been reduced to a minor role in retail. That is the way the world works, unless the government get involved, like or ours was dragged into saving a non-competitive auto industry. If Sears had had unions, we would still be shopping there, paying more for everything they sell because the government would have put tariffs, regulations and additional taxes on all their competitors, while pumping tax money into saving union jobs.
