That is the ugliest looking building I have seen in a good long time. If they end up going with a design like the one shown in this article, it would suggest that there was nepotism in selecting the architect becuase he or she is totally without talent.

Maybe this means the boys are wrong and the financing plan for the stadium will work after all. The boys always keep shovels ready to bury ideas that don't fit the ideology.

Never playing anything that gives money to a professional sports team because they don't want to foot their own bill.

We have to get more people gambling. As more people decide not to smoke, our sin taxes are going down. Legalizing prostitution, and taxing it, will be discussed in the next legislative session.

metoo7... this is just an "artist rendition". It is NOT the final design. It's basically a placeholder until the final design is released.

Whether your are a Republican, Democrat, Libertarian, Independent or I-Don't-Care, we have lost our moral compass when we use gambling proceeds to fund a major public works program. A policy that rests on the hope and expectation that if enough citizens gamble and lose, their losses can fund the construction of an enormous stadium is Disgraceful. Just shameful. Where are the clergy, our community leaders, the conservative intelligentsia, university policy wonks, the editorial board of this newspaper ?? Hiding, in plain sight, I suppose.
