More money needlessly flushed away.

Don't worry pitythefools, the unexpected cost of likely quite expensive explosives, the expert personnel to install them, the increased safety personnel to keep "gawkers" away, and revised rubble removal plan will be added to Derriere Chair license fees. Otherwise, mediaspin Kelm-Helgen would have said that this alternative plan would be "budget neutral."

The ring beam will be "exploded?" How about "imploded" instead?

Umm Editors; if you lost your dictionary: explode(v) increase suddenly or rapidly in size. implode (v) collapse or cause to collapse violently inward. If they are going to be exploding the metrodome; I hope they are going to clear a lot more than 250 feet

So where's the photo gallery going to be located? You can't tell me, that with all the public money involved, we won't be allowed to take pictures of our tax dollars at work.....

Actually, the ring is being EXploded. It will fall outside of the building. Imploding is when they do entire building and they fall in on themselves.

"Gawkers are discouraged." So make sure you get it into the paper ahead of time so everyone knows about it. *or* Yes, they certainly are.
