Heal the sick, comfort the downtrodden, etc.

Update: Officials say dome will bring jobs, other benefits – Breaking News from The Birmingham News – al.com

It won’t do that, but then it won’t benefit the economy either. People have been over this and over this… Anyway, they did actually start building the Birmingdome on Tuesday. What will happen when they run out of money, which will happen fairly soon since the county is broke, I don’t know. There were protesters, including one with a sense of history who came up with “Crackpot Dome Scandal”. You don’t see a lot of Harding-era references these days.
