Tallest Building in the United States...

One World Trade Center in New York City took a title away from the Willis Tower in Chicago.{}{}{} It will be America's tallest building when completed.

The height committee of the council on tall buildings and urban habitat has been studying whether a design change means the needle atop One World Trade Center is part of the actual building or merely the equivalent of a broadcast antenna.

That needle is symbolically important. It makes the building 1,776 feet tall. Without it, the building would have been 83 feet shorter than the Willis Tower.

Chicago Sinkhole

A sink hole swallowed up part of a Chicago street. The 20-by-80 foot hole appeared just a few yards away from a couple of houses.{} A broken pipe is to blame.

John Lennon Detention Sheets

He may have sung about peace and love, but John Lennon was apparently a "bad boy."{}

A pair of the late Beatle's detention sheets show him being punished for "fighting in class," ''shoving" and being a general nuisance.

The sheets from Quarry Bank High School for boys in Liverpool are to be sold online later this month.
