They tried to blow up the Pontiac Silver Dome
yesterday but it was a total failure.. they
tried again this evening and it finally came
down.. I could hear it from my home in Romeo MI..
just a faint rumble...but its down(for what they
wanted down for now).. it will take them another
9 months to finish the job... sorry.. no pic yet

They had 300# of explosives on the first try..
I knew that wasnt gonna do it(I was demolitions
in the military).. they added 600# more today..
it did what they wanted today.. plus I am sure
they added all the unblown explosives to the
blast today
