funny part is0 they will only get negative publicity for not having food, running water, and clean bathrooms for the scumbags they tried to keep safe

You dont think this is free do you? They will get a nice big fat check.

Just picking up the trash and cleaning off the graffiti will be a nightmare, let alone all the damage.

And I bet the dark nooks in both places will smell like urine for years.

It's very sad. I attended the Super Bowl at the Superdome in New Orleans back in 2002. It was a beautiful venue. I fear it's not going to see another Super Bowl or ANYTHING ever again.

and the toilet situation was NOT the fault of the Superdome, or it's owners. No drainage? Heck, the toilets in the White House would cease to work in that situation.

Don't worry about them. They have insurance. And even if they didn't, the .gov will have to reimburse them. They commandeered it, basically.

Anyone with a brain will know that the loss of running water was way beyond the control of anyone at the Superdome. And the people were told to bring food. Then the .gov brought in tonsof MREs. They aren't starving.

That is really uncalled for.

My wife said, "Christ - look at most of the women they are showing. They could stand to go a few weeks without food and lose that extra 200 pounds. But now they'll be scarfing down two-three 3500 calorie MRE's a day. Disgusting."

I bet they bring in hoses similar to ones from firetrucks and spray it down.

Actually, time will prove him right or wrong. I suspect the words are more prescient than you'll admit.

ETA: And I am willing to be the owners lose a fair amount to the inevitable lawsuits.

The buildings will have to be gutted in the least or totally rebuilt. The Astrodome doesnt have sporting event there anymore from what the news was saying.

Upside is that this will require jobs.

If anyone there will take advantage of the jobs, that remains to be seen.

They will probably just go to a pawn shop or jewelery store in another state and sell their 'recently found jewelery' and make $20-30k.

Those places will be totally trashed.

Sounds spot on to me.
