Yep, those are the J & M.

It's 8:35 PM EST. The mast lights are still on.

I think it's a little ironic that the decision is going to be made in Chicago, home of the Willis Tower. But I'm going to let it go.
Seems appropriate since Chicago is the birthplace of the skyscraper

Good point. I'm confident they'll make the right decision tonight, whether I agree or disagree. I'm on the fence at the moment.

Thanks for sharing Hudson. Videos of the spire lit up are even better than pictures!
