I just read where the estimate to repair the Superdome will cost a $100 million whereas building a new stadium would cost between $500-600 million. It will take approximately 2 months to do an assessment.

I for one will -NEVER- set foot in the Superdome again. I mean it. NEVER. Not after what happened in there.

I will NOT sit in a seat where I know children were raped and then murdered.

The Dome should be torn down, and a memorial to the victims left in its place.

Blame? I don't blame the building for anything. How could I? It's an inanimate object. That's not the point.

I heard dozens of people died in there, children among them. AFTER being raped. I will not go in there. We'll see as the interviews from victims when things calm down.

And assuming even only one single isolated case of that is true, then perhaps it would be similar to setting up a nice retractable roof stadium in Auschwitz. I mean, it's not the building's fault so many people were tortured there. I mean, it might even be cozy if it was built right, and it's situated on some gorgeous land. Would you want to sit through a game there, enjoying and laughing? When you know what happened on that piece of ground?

An extreme exaggeration, I know, but I hope it conveys the principle I wanted to communicate. The Dome was a center of horror, fear, and death - I think no one will argue that point. And that's enough for me.

That is why I will never set foot there again. I'm sure a few thousand people who were there feel the same way.

Tear it down, it's partially destroyed anyway. Don't rebuild it.

can anyone help me id this tune? it goes thwap thwap boom tch boom tch boom tch.

Qui a laissez sortir les chiens!

I agree with you LOE. But nothing good EVER happened at Auschwitz. Some really good things have happened at the Dome. I'm not totally against rebuilding it, I'm not against tearing it down. That Dome also saved alot of lives. Maybe it wasn't the best of situations, but the people that lived, did so only because the Dome was there. If there wasn't a Dome, how many people would have lost their lives?

It was always a good place and some great things have happened there. I think on the list of good, you can add that 10,000 people or more lived because it was a place of refuge when the hurricane hit. A lot of those people would have tried to sit it out in the very homes that could have been destroyed by the hurricane.

I'm not arguing your point LOE, just trying to look at the positives too.

I totally agree with with LOE and jnor. I still remeber the first time I walked into the Dome. I was speechless. To me seeing the Pope could have only made it better. I still have the picture of me as a small boy in front of the "Penny Dome". Great, Great memories........but.

Due to the actions that happened in there, it needs to go. When most people have faced a trauma like that just the sight of the Dome will bring back terrifing memories and flash-backs. How can we go in there and enjoy a game, or any other civic function, knowing what happened in there.

I do agree another dome needs to be built and the old one needs to be monumented. It is historic and did save alot of lives.

It will be a great day when "man" can do what is the right thing to do, with out thinking about it in terms of dollars. God Bless Mississippi and Louisiana.
