However, last June 22, the Dame was closed after its lease was bought out as part of a move to clear businesses from the block to make way for construction of CentrePointe, the proposed 35-story high-rise hotel and condominium tower.
That decision proved to be controversial to say the least and it left the future of the Dame, as well as that of my brother's career, in limbo.
I'm very pleased to learn this morning however, that a Phoenix has risen from the ash.

So, speaking as someone with little free time, I found this article of interest.
Imus admit that I laughed aloud with a cynical guffaw when I read the last two lines which read
"Those in the high activity group who did around 3 to 4 hours of moderate exercise each day burned 900 more calories than the low activity group.
This shows that with exercise, you truly can beat your fat gene."
Huh??!! 3 to 4 hours of exercise A DAY?! What person has time for that? Say someone works an average 9 to 5 job, and let's say that they wake up on average around 7:30 AM to get their morning ritual underway. Now let's figure an average of 30 minutes to get to work and another 30 to get home. In order to have 3 to 4 hours of exercise a day, they would need to rise at 3:30 AM and leap into some exercise routine groggy eyed with morning breath, or exercise from roughly 6:00 PM to 10:00 PM each and every night.
