Dear Jenner & Block - stop working so hard!

A Trump Tower Chicago resident is apparently complaining that Jenner & Block's lights are on 24/7, and that this is disturbing her sleep, not to mention that Jenner's wasting energy. Not very green, I guess, but yhey are a BigLaw firm, and that's the way many of these folks operate. (When I was in BigLaw lights went out around 9 as I recall; after that you had to work them manually in your office.)

OK, so this buyer never bothered to check out a million dollar-ish condo at night for the views or other issues? She's apparently using eyemasks now (uhhh, yeah, a good idea), but that's not good enough.

But at the end of the day I don't understand why the Tribune story failed to catch a key issue here, one that hopefully makes this story a non-story soon. As I recall, Jenner is moving to new digs later this year. Hopefully that solves this "problem."

How do you spend $952,000 on a condo and not leave room in your decorating budget for some curtains or black-out shades? Problem solved.

True, although I'm not sure what the condo declaration has to say about doing that. You never know. In any event, it seems much ado about nothing.

THIS is newsworthy? Must have been a slow day at the city desk...
