You're higher!

As if real estate mogul Donald Trump needs to have a reason to brag, he's got another one: The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat has moved Chicago's Trump International Hotel & Tower from the seventh-tallest building in the world to sixth after changing its criteria for judging how high a building really is.

We can all breathe a little easier knowing The Donald won't be sulking too long after giving up on his quest to win back his casinos in Atlantic City earlier in the week.

As I write this, Taipei 101 is the tallest building in the world, but that structure will soon lose the perch it's held since 2004 to Burj Dubai, which is expected to be ready in 2010.
