Old domes never die

The proposal to build a domed stadium complex in Birmingham, Alabama – rejected by a voter referendum way back in 1998 – is still alive, or at least undead. The latest news is that a study by Deloitte & Touche (think of them as the unindicted Arthur Andersen) says that operating losses would be lower than previously expected. How they can tell – given that, among other things, Birmingham doesn’t even have a pro football team to play in the proposed dome – is beyond us, but then that’s why they don’t pay us the big stadium-consulting bucks.
