Downtown arena: It's no Half Dome

Published: Friday, Feb. 7, 2014 - 5:02 pm

Re Arena design: The assertion by Rob Rothblatt, head of the downtown arena design team, that the arena design offers a grand view, likening it to Half Dome with its reach-for-the-sky profile, reminds me Lloyd Bentsen's comment to Dan Quayle in the 1988 Vice-Presidential debate, 'Senator, you are no Jack Kennedy'.

I've been to Half Dome. It indeed offers a grand view and is an inspiration to many. Sir, this arena design is no Half Dome.
