It's good for concerts and conventions, too.

They could use the venue for different things, and in theory, it generates a lot of jobs and taxes... but yeah, you're right.

Somebody said "give the people bread and circus", or something like that. I think it was a roman emperor.

well considering the drop in attendance and ratings, i'm not sure the appeal of bread and circuses is quite what it used to be

It's Lakshmi and Vishnu's wedding day (among other things) so assuredly somebody's getting Lucky.

Massive rockfall off of El Capitan in Yosemite:

Image


This pic is just showing some of the dusty aftermath. There are more pictures and video at the link showing the actual fall, though all of them are tweets and do not link well here at Macstack (well, unless someone can explain to me how they do it unless they are taking such and hosting them other than at Twitter).
On Wednesday, a sheet of granite the height of a 13-story building — about 130 feet long, 65 feet wide and in some sections 10 feet thick — separated from the rock face and dropped to the base of El Capitan, officials said.

A couple from Wales happened to standing near the base of the cliff when this happened, killing the man and his wife was airlifted to a hospital.
