They’re tearing up the wall

They’re tearing up the wall around the elevators on our floor in the building I work in (which used to be the John Deere factory here in Mpls). In the process, they’ve exposed the building’s original brick wall, still bearing John Deere’s “Quality Implements” tag line, painted in really bold, black letters across the wall. A co-worker of mine, not wanting them to build something modern and crappy over the wall (again), has put up a “Save The Wall” petition…and people are actually signing it. Not that it will do any good, but still.
