Wow. The floor collapse at the convention center keeps looking worse and worse. One of the major attributes that supporters have leaned on over the years involve the facility's basic structure: It's innovate! It's green! It's...
That hurts. But it might be the case. According to County Executive Dan Onorato:
No decision has been made on whether the two-week auto show, slated to begin Saturday, will go ahead. It is to be followed by the annual home and garden show. The two events are among the biggest annual shows on the center's calendar.
But Mr. Onorato said "We're not going to put anybody in the building until we get clearance that it is safe."
He said there appears to be "a major defect in the building."
Not a defect. A major defect. Ouch. Although another official indicates that the problem is isolated. It will be interesting to see how this plays out. But if there is a major defect, I don't think that even a new convention center hotel will cure what ails us.
