Okay, I will start this by saying, I did sign the petition. I signed it to support the idea, that it will always be the Sears Tower, in my mind. I don't often say "Sears Tower" just like I don't say "Comiskey Park" out loud very often. When I address places that are no longer places, well, that's just the way it goes. I have seen everything in Chicago change over the past 30 or so years. I was born here. There is nothing positive about loosing a name, or a landmark. Look at Comiskey Park, Marshall Field's, now Sears Tower, and next will be Wrigley Field. At this point we ought not be surprised. Memories don't make money, and that sucks.
"A rose by any other name would smell as sweet" ...or still be totally awesome
In closing, I still think you should sign the petition, if for nothing else, to get a little closure.
