After 25 years, it was time to say goodbye to the Georgia Dome in Atlanta.

It cost Georgia taxpayers $214 million to build, 1989-1992. In today’s dollars, that is $385 million.
The new Mercedes-Benz Stadium is going to replace it, right next door. Total public funding: $600 million.

Here today. Gone tomorrow.

Well, I guess the “suckers in Georgia” aka the Taxpayers are happy being sheered like the “We, The Sheeple” they are.

Argh!

Elon Musk’s Tesla recently became the latest big shot company to enter the self-driving car sweepstakes. Mr. Musk recently announced the hiring of software architecture veteran Jim Keller, who previously had played key roles at Apple and AMD, to lead its Autopilot Engineering team. Tesla’s move follows the recently announced partnership between General Motors and Lyft, in which the automaker is investing $500 million in the ridesharing company as part of a joint venture to develop self-driving cars.

I wouldn’t mind having a “driverless car”. 

I don’t think it will happen in my lifetime.

It will hugely disrupt the economy. Hard to imagine all the impacts.

Great for the senior citizens who should no longer be driving.
