Someone doesn't look like they want to be in this photo with the mayor, the U.S. treasurer and some council members.
Like I said, we're a wee bit shorthanded at the moment, and I couldn't find anyone willing to spend a damp afternoon at the Omni construction site with Mayor Tom Leppert and U.S. Treasurer Rosie Rios. Which doesn't mean we can't share this group photo provided by Chris Heinbaugh; Merten's already made it his computer-screen wallpaper. And, after the jump, some "fun facts" (says so!) about the construction of Your Convention Center Hotel, provided by City Hall. Such as: "The project will include 60,000 cubic yards of concrete, totaling 243 million pounds. This is enough concrete to build a 4-foot wide sidewalk over 230 miles long (the approximate distance from Dallas to Houston)." Useful!
