How Does A PorkForest Pay For Itself?

Part two of the Iowa City Press-Citizen's series is up today. Read the whole thing.

Oman is still dreaming for 3500 visitors a day, 60% from out of state. That's a laugh. How many people are expected to come in January when it's snowing and some days the high temps barely get into the single digits?

The Press-Citizen does some good investigation of other attractions which have failed to meet their "conservative" projections. Of course, I spent a half hour on a Sunday in January in my La-Z-Boy chair Googling and it wasn't difficult to find troubled projects.

Stay tuned for part three on Monday...
