N.D., at 2,063 feet, which is still the tallest structure in the
western hemisphere, but lost its world title to the Burj Khalifa
(formerly Burj Dubai) in Dubai.
  The next time you're at your local library, check out the latest Atlantic magazine
 (most libraries carry it); there's a major story about the world's skyscrapers,
 including the Burj Khalifa.  I'm sorry the article never mentioned TV and
 FM antennas though.
