Houston Voters Save Astrodome?

Look at the headline. Then look at the URL.

Oops.

Poor Astrodome.

The referendum had called for creating 350,000 square feet of exhibition space by removing the interior seats and raising the floor to street level. Other changes included creating 400,000 square feet of plaza and green space on the outside of the structure as part of the project, dubbed “The New Dome Experience.”

The New Dome Experience sounds like the name of a prog-rock band.

(Songs on The New Dome Experience’s debut album include “Cage Battin’,” “Spheres of Leather,” and “Another Ad On The Wall (Part II)”)
