The Astrodome was one of the horrors of the modern world. It may have been fan-friendly, I don't know. I do know every position player in the NL hated the place.
Oh, it was extremely so. Yes, the players hated it, and the Stros always lost there, but it was the most comfortable sports stadium ever built. Right now the big debate is what to do with the place. We are trying to get the Olympic Committee to consider it for a permanent international Track & Field stadium. I hope it works out - I might even take an interest in pole vaulting if it happens. Right now it's being used for high school football games. How the mighty have fallen.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
