Superdome Re-Opens for New Football Season

Hosted by

Thirteen months ago the Superdome was the central focus of the horrors brought by Hurricane Katrina, and it became symbolic of spectacular failure at all levels of government. Katrina ripped part of the roof off the Superdome, which was then filled with refugees. There was a shooting and a suicide, bodies stored in a refrigerator, and nobody allowed inside without a biohazard suit. Tonight, the New Orleans Saints will play their first home game of the year and--for the first time in team history--all the season tickets have been sold.
