To All Imploders Anonymous:  KINGDOME IMPLOSION ( DOMEDAY ) SET FOR SUN MAR 26 8:30 AM

This Sunday, all eyes in the Pacific Northwest will be on the Kingdome.  It's shaping up as the most photographed structural collapse (by controlled demolition) in Internet time.  If you're interested in watching, there are a number of Internet sites available, including one for 3-D viewing with those funny little special glasses from the 1950s.

CDI's secret to Quality Assurance:

            "You learn more from your mistakes than your successes."

            "Stay small, stay sharp, stay safe."

            "The Kingdome - that's one thing I would not have touched with a 10-foot pole.  
              It's just so big and it's so differenct from anything we've done.  It takes a lot of 
              courage and a lot of thought, which the boys, of couse, have given it."
