You may have heard of the Global Agreement- the ominously titled, outrageously ambitious $3 billion project that will basically solve all of Downtown Miami's debt problems, put a new Marlins stadium in Little Havana, build of Port of Miami tunnel, and cure genital warts. Okay, we threw that last one in a bit unrealistically, but hey, can't we act like a politician every once in a while?
The wheels may be falling off this crazy bus as it hurtles through a getting-scarier-by-the-moment Recession. This morning, a major financial partner with Miami in building the tunnel, Babcock & Brown, bit the dust. Naturally, a few hours later, so did the tunnel plan itself. The state killed it for lack of funds. "We just a broke motherfucker," the State told reporters before asking for a cigarette.
Over/under on months until the Little Havana stadium goes Hoffa as well is at six, and we're taking the under.
