This evening the Major League held its all-star baseball game, in New York in Yankee Stadium. It is the final season for that storied place, as it is being torn down and replaced.
What caught my attention is this: The orginal Yankee Stadium was built 85 years ago — for $2.5 million, and it was built in one year.
The replacement stadium will cost $1.3 billion, which is not that surprising. But, when and how did we lose the ability to do great things that quickly?
This is actually an important question given the challenges that we face currently.
