Demolition of The Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome/Mall of America Field has begun, clearing the way to begin construction of the $1 billion dollar replacement planned for the existing site. Of that $1 Billion, just over half will be provided by the taxpayers, with the city of Minneapolis on the hook for an additional $678 billion dollars over the next thirty years. It seems only fair and just that we should open our wallets and our hearts for the most needy amongst us.
