I think 1 or 2 have the Independent in their back drop. I can imagine the next 3 years will have them scrambling to one up the others as it changes in the next 3 years. I s'pose they don't like seeing all the cranes in the back ground. Ha Ha!
You are right about most people not noticing. I had to stop my wife from buying a framed photo of Austin's skyline about 1 year ago.. it was a nice photo, but I don't think it even had the Austonian. I had to explain to her that the skyline doesn't look like that anymore, and even if HAD been an up to date photo, it would be outdated in a year or two. And it's not like we live way out of town or everything -- she sees the skyline every day when leaving our neighborhood.
