    There are one or two really huge issues that I have with CNN in general.
    I have no real complaints regarding the CNN Tower though. It's a remarkably well built structure.
    It certainly stands out on the Toronto skyline and its something that is very hard not to notice.

    For the record, it's the CN Tower, not CNN. There are not two N's, you guys must be seeing double!

    Actually it's the CN Tower, not CNN. But it is amazing that anything that top heavy can be stable.
