    I've watched a few on tv but never in person.

    I always miss the fun stuff.

    Too bad it wasn't the 30 Building and not a 30 story building.

    This triggered a memory. Nearly 20 years ago I saw a building imploded in downtown Houston. It's pretty amazing how 'neat' it is. I can't believe I forgot about that....

    I watched it go down on local TV this morning. I live in Ft. Worth. The Landmark Tower was also known as the Texas Building. It had a large revolving clock on the roof that you could see from miles away, but it hadn't worked in quite a few years. It had an aluminum skin and wasn't too bad looking. There was a plan to convert it to condos and build a parking garage next door, but they couldn't get the financing worked out. The Bank One Tower, damaged in a tornado several years ago, has been completely rehabilitated. I understand the one bedroom apartments are going for $150,000.
