(the US Capitol...can you imagine the cost of such a building today?
Especially  for a place where no useful work ever gets done ;-)

-----/Original Message/-----

Um, how about any "football-only"/"baseball-only"/"basketball-only"
facility constructed in the last ten years?

We sure got one helluva'n expensive sandbox called Reliant Stadium
hereabouts, that cost about $350 mill six years ago. Not a WHOLE lot of
"useful work" gets done there!

(Unless you want to count lying on your back admiring the fine steelwork
at the underside of the retractable roof, as David Carr has been
privileged to do on a record-setting number of occasions).
