Minneapolis: Did dome deflate bid?

City boosters made the Metrodome part of their original bid for the 2012 Democratic National Convention.

Plans changed when the venue's dome collapsed in December.

Now, city officials now are emphasizing other sites that could host the event, including the Target Center.

Mayor R.T. Rybak told television station KSTP that Minneapolis' bid is is still very much alive.

According to the story, "Although some national publications speculate St. Louis and Charlotte are the front runners, Rybak calls them the 'front talkers.'"

Cleveland is the fourth city in the running.

What about all those massive leaks in the structurally unsound defective roof of Time Warner Area pouring rain water in ? The whole roof is rotten and needs to come off. Those temp bandaids are gonna blow.

Dont count them out. New Orleans Arena was a total loss in '95 and rebuilt for the next season. Metrodome is being repaired.
