Rainforest Con-Artists DID Talk To Dubuque's Leaders

From WHO-TV, via the Associated Press:
Iowa Organizers of an indoor rain forest project say they'll give one more shot at working a land deal in Coralville.

If that fails, they'll find another place to build their forest.

Board members of The Environmental Project decided today to continue talks to get 22 acres along Interstate 80.

But hours after that decision, city officials in Dubuque said they've already spoken with organizers about building the rainforest in their city.

That news bothered Coralville leaders, who called the organizers' actions in Dubuque inappropriate.

Wherever the rainforest is built, organizers predict it will become a major tourist attraction.
The Coralville City Council should tell David Oman and Bob "Filthy" Ray to fuck off and take their stupid rainforest somewhere else. It's long overdue.

You think it's bad now? Wait until the thing is being constructed and there's cost overruns. Who do you think is going to be paying for that?
