Doug Thornton - area Manger for SMG group on Dome

10:11 A.M. - Doug Thornton: Assessment to be made whether dome can be rebuilt, restored or torn down, but premature to say it has to go. Decision on dome is weeks away.
10:10 A.M. - Thornton: Valid to ask if dome should be reopened since it was site of so much death. Thornton says many good memories also in dome.
10:10 A.M. - Doug Thornton, Superdome: Premature to say the dome can't be saved.
