The [Friday] Papers

"The John Hancock Center could be getting a new owner - and maybe even a new name," the Tribune reports.

"Chicago-based developer Hearn Co. plans to put the North Michigan Avenue tower's office space and parking garage up for sale, possibly by late summer, company President and CEO Stephen Hearn said."

*

Sneed reporting for the Sun-Times exactly one year ago:

"As Sneed exclusively reported last year, Hearn Co., which owns the commercial portion of the John Hancock Center - was pitching proposals that could include a naming-rights deal because the John Hancock company no longer owned the building."

So this is the third annual renaming report, right? Just sayin'.

*

The joke I was going to make today about it is the same one I made a year ago, so just go to the item Signature Building.

Sanford & Dylan
I came across this episode on Thursday afternoon just in time for this:

*

I'm reminded of Bob Dylan's "Hurricane" from 1975:

Meanwhile, far away in another part of town
Rubin Carter and a couple of friends are drivin' around
Number one contender for the middleweight crown
Had no idea what kinda shit was about to go down
When a cop pulled him over to the side of the road
Just like the time before and the time before that
In Paterson that's just the way things go
If you're black you might as well not show up on the street
'Less you wanna draw the heat

*

Of course, we could go way further back in time for true historical context, but somehow a lot of white folk think these are new - or even fake - issues. Sad!
