(Look -- the demolition of Reunion Arena, which will now be finished come January 2010 per this week's council agenda, saves the city $3.6 million.) Here too is the 59-page briefing prepared for Monday's council rap session. Some light weekend reading, in other words.
Here, listen to this while you're reading it. It'll help. (Anyone know where this is from?)
