Another neo-liberal triumph...

It is truly heartwarming to see the rejuvenated Super Dome standing as a monument to the American can-do spirit of cooperation and perseverance. It is hard to imagine another economically advanced society coming together to refurbish an athletic facility so quickly in order to cater to the needs of both millionaire athletes and multi-billionaire owners, and to entertain the indigent and unemployed. The effected region is truly on its way back to its rightful rank of 49th and 50th among the United States in most meaningful measures of human development.

One suggestion though, this commentator believes this symbol of the American ethos should be renamed the Freedom Dome in order to do justice to the noble legacy of this great society, and to remember those minorities who used this authentically multi-purpose facility as a make-shift morgue.

Freedom Dome doesn't go far enough! What the Saints need to do is remove that FRENCH flower of light (fleur de lis) logo and replace it with the true symbol of hope of the superdome, the greyhound bus. Oh, what glory it must have been for those folks after 5 days of fending for themselves to see the greyhound bus that would split up mothers and children and drive them to destinations unknown, no questions answered! USA! USA! USA! USA!
